What is DECENTE-ISM

Every product that is carefully hand-crafted has a unique story to tell

Behind every item is a history of techniques preserved over time, enriched by life experiences of the artisans who made it. It exists as a result of a long progression through many pairs of hands. At Descente, the whole ethos of craftsmanship is sustained by a large number of people. From the marketing team’s initial concept, the creativity of the designers used to develop an initial image. That becomes the basis of the manufacturing process starting with more detailed design and creation of paper patterns. With sportswear, there are many things to consider: what kind of pattern to follow, how it should be sewn, and what the process of production should be. As it passes through the hands of specialists, it takes shape in each relevant stage of development, the transition of the original, flat image into a real, three dimensional product. The production specifications stemming from the original flat image become a multi-page document, evolving into an intricate instruction manual setting out exactly what sort of product it will become, and the detail of the steps to be taken to achieve it. This process is at the very heart of Descente’s craftsmanship ethos. It is here that the DNA of Descente becomes deeply imbedded in the product.

Our unique, tried and proven S.I.O. pattern cutting technology is a sure fire way of optimizing comfort and performance. In conventional pattern making, the design and cutting processes are done on a flat surface, but with our home-grown S.I.O. system, it is possible to simulate draping a fabric over a human figure posing in the optimum active position, or stance, for a particular sport –enabling design and cutting that very closely mimics the natural body positions adopted in competition, and so achieving minimum stress patterns.
