About Us

 combining team spirit with fashion is our passion!

Carol and Sonny DeShong gameday in Austin 2019 with the Texas Tower

Hi!

This is us, Sonny and Carol DeShong, founders and co creators of Desden. We've been married for forever and working together about 13 years..our life is a roller coaster with running a business and putting 3 kids through college at the same time..thankfully we have an adorable golden retriever Ranger, who acts as our therapy dog..that, and we get to the beach as often as possible! 

Our Desden story actually began back in 1971, when my father in law started Landes Inc., manufacturing totes for the retail market (remember those cute wooden handled purses with the buttons?) and eventually moving into promotional products. We still cut, print and sew in our factory in Houston, today.  You could say that Desden is the love child of Landes and College Football. Seriously, we love all things gameday, and noticing a gaping hole in the market for anything geared towards the female fan..Desden began. Combining our design backgrounds and manufacturing capabilities, we started in 2007 with a simple Hibiscus patterned tote and a handful of colleges..fast forward to today, where we are licensed* for over 60 universities and have expanded our line to include aprons, coolers, crossbody purses and more. Our tag line, "teaming with style" was born from the idea of combining team spirit and fashion, and that you shouldn't have to compromise one for the other! 

 

Please don't hesitate to reach out with a question, or just to say Hi - we'd love to hear from you! You can reach me via email, cd@desden.com

Great fit and breathable. Best mask we've used.

Hey Mary -
Thank you! You're the best for taking the time to tell us how much you love your reversible West Virginia University face mask! We put so much time into designing our face coverings, and it means a lot to us to hear your opinion. Thanks again and Go Mountaineers! xo Team Desden

Face masks review

Our store sells Desden collegiate face masks. We have trouble keeping them in stock. Being reversible is a great selling point...it is like 2-for-1; but, customers seem return to buy a second one because of the comfort and washability. It is a very good product for the retailer and consumer.

We absolutely love creating useful and fashionable gameday gear (including face masks) for shops like Scrappy Sam's! Thanks so much for the review - we really appreciate it! We actually worked really really hard getting the style and sizing just right on our face coverings, and have been proud of what we came up with. Great to know your customers agree.
