1920 is the year that the German immigrant William Peter Dehen founds Dehen Knitting Company in Portland, Oregon. The brand quickly becomes known for its sweaters for motorcyclists and high schools. Just as today, durability was the main objective. This sense for quality and tried and tested methods have helped the company survive economic depressions, so that it remains as one of the last few businesses in the USA that manufacture as they did almost a century ago.
All their products are produced using the finest materials, in small runs in Portland.
