Founded by William Peter Dehen in 1920, Dehen Knitting Company produces classic and traditional U.S. heavyweight apparel. Keeping true to our humble yet pioneering beginnings in Portland, Oregon, we are a family business known for long-lasting quality, workmanship and rugged styling. Over the last 90 plus years there have been many changes, not the least of which was the pressure to move our manufacturing outside the United States. Even when times got tough, not once did we flinch in our approach and commitment. We are proud of our company, our employees and our continued resilience over so many years in business. We refuse to compromise on the methods and ideals honed over the past 96 years, while accepting the challenge to keep moving forward.
