We wanted a fleece that strayed away from the norm. The Ropi¬†first came to life in the form of a softshell anorak. After a year of wearing that anorak,¬†we opted to change the fabric to our newly developed fleece and constructed a pullover that comes on and off with ease and feels like you're wearing a blanket. The kangaroo "pouch" has a zippered entry to keep your belongings secure and the over-sized hood leaves room for a helmet if you're on the ski hill or cycling on a brisk night. Add a heavy-duty¬†ribbed cuff and an elastic waist drawcord to complete the optimal cold weather fleece.
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 San Francisco, 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 towards creating truly unique garments in small enough¬†quantities that you will seldom - if ever - find another person wearing the same piece.
