2010 - Today

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.

Today, well into our fourth generation, Dehen continues a tradition of heavy duty, quality manufacturing while actually producing our goods in Portland. Value is built into every garment that Dehen makes. 

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 100 years, while accepting the challenge to move forward. Launched in 2011 our Dehen 1920 line combines the best of our past with an eye on the future. 

We hope to share with you the “Heavy Duty, Old School Truth” that is Dehen 1920.
