Deso·lation

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.

Our Inspiration

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.

Our Apparel

More listening, less speaking.

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.

Our Approach

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 and seamstresses who are paid livable wages right in the heart of San Francisco, California.   

See you #wayoutthere.
