DEDON was born out of a love of the outdoors, a willingness to think differently and a relentless pursuit of quality. More than 25 years and 1000 employees later, not that much has changed.
Bobby Dekeyser founded DEDON in 1990. Starting with an innovative, weatherproof synthetic fiber, the company set out to create a new kind of woven outdoor furniture, one that combined modern technology with luxurious hand-craftsmanship. A search for the world’s best weavers led DEDON to Cebu Island in the Philippines. While the early years were marked by trial and error, the uniqueness of the product, the artistry of the weaving and the company’s obsession with quality set DEDON apart from the beginning.
Researched, developed, manufactured and tested at our state-of-the-art production facilities in northern Germany, environmentally-friendly DEDON fiber is unrivaled for strength, durability, weather fastness and luxuriousness of color, texture and touch. Our fiber is recyclable and non-toxic, burning as cleanly as candle wax.
Unique within the outdoor industry, DEDON owns and operates both furniture and fiber production, allowing us to brings fiber specialists and world-class designers together to develop innovative new fiber colors, profiles, textures and more. More than just a material, DEDON fiber becomes an expression of a collection’s soul.
