Deso is the art form of getting lost. That art form translated into a project that ripened in Desolation Wilderness.
With a crew of DIY-minded wild spirits digging into anything that isn’t standard, we're finding resolve in a cool cocktail of design, nature, and travel. We create high-quality, functional garments designed to get you way out there.
Born out of time spent in Desolation Wilderness, a remote treasure in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Deso designs for those who get #wayoutthere. Intended to seamlessly blend lives in the city with time around the campfire, we've set our sights on function-driven style. With meticulous attention to detail, it is our goal to create truly unique garments.
The fabrics in our collections employ a subtle array of technical properties, ranging from water resistance or sun protection to antimicrobial elements to block the funk. They quietly convey the stories of time spent in the outdoors and the workshop. We've chosen them because they'll function while you're out there.
We get it. Manufacturing stateside is comparatively expensive. But in our time, we've learned that there's much more to a garment than the final price tag and if that's the lens you take, that's fine, but we're chasing a different dream.
We opted for domestic manufacturing to closely monitor product development and foster a genuine relationship with the humans producing our wears. The quality you experience with our garments comes from the skilled hands of experienced sewers who are paid livable wages right in the heart of Los Angeles, California.
Bulk garment manufacturing can often overlook quality in an effort to produce large-scale quantities in a timely manner. Too many overseas factories have awful working conditions and unlivable wages. We at Deso opt for domestic manufacturing in order to oversee the product development life cycle and develop a genuine relationship with the humans producing our garments. The quality of our garments comes from experienced tailors that are paid a livable wage and work in healthy conditions right in the heart of Los Angeles, CA. We source our materials from the most reliable high-end manufacturers in the world whose values and standards align with ours. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and direct our focus on creating truly unique garments in small enough quantities that you will seldom - if ever - find another person wearing the same piece.
