Founded in 1935 in Osaka, Japan, Descente pioneered the development and manufacturing of high performance technical fabric for active sportswear. Making its move into skiwear in 1957, the Descente brand has led the industry innovations and was a key factor in progressing the sport of skiing. Today, Descente continues to push the envelope with exceptional workmanship, quality, attention to detail, beautiful palettes, and breathtaking finishes. At Descente the philosophy of excellence in craftsmanship is sustained by everyone from the point of a product’s inception, to the moment an athlete puts it into action. Behind every Descente product is a rich history of groundbreaking design and production techniques fused with the skills and life experiences of true artisans. A spirit of care is infused into every fiber of Descente ski coats, pants and hats.
Descente is one of the top brands featuring design, durability, value, cutting edge fashion, and technology. All Descente ski coats and pants are made with quality and sustainable materials.

At Descente, production of a garment pattern begins with a concept initiated by a marketing team, and refined through the company's careful, time-consuming design process. At every stage of that process, experts look at the pattern from all angles to determine how it will eventually appear, how it will be sewn, and how that flat image will be transformed into a three dimensional one. Every small detail is recorded, and evolves into an "instruction manual", telling the story of exactly what sort of product it will become, and of all the steps to be taken to achieve it. It is this process that goes to the heart of Descente's superior craftsmanship. The commitment to craftsmanship rests on the desire to give the best possible product to all athletes, enthusiasts and all who just love their sports. This desire, this passion, is the Spirit of Descente.
By their very nature, sportswear products are tested to the limits of performance in the harsh environments of their various fields. One of Descente's key aims is to make sure that its craftsmanship plays a key role in performance enhancement and innovation. To maintain stringent quality in these areas, Descente has implemented the "Descente Standard", taking complete responsibility for safety and quality issues and complying with all relevant laws and regulations. These principles are applied throughout the globe. Strenuous efforts are made to ensure that everyone benefits equally from Descente's quality and safety-driven craftsmanship.
