Tellason Denim, Made in San Francisco

1990 as the year that Tellason founders Tony Patella and Pete Searson, became friends. A shared interest of durable, hard wearing and quality goods soon became apparent and they used this passion to create the Tellason brand. All the denim has been produced, designed and manufactured in their home city of San Francisco, USA. It is a prominent value within the company that the denim will always be made where it should be, the USA. In their words, we do not want “prosciutto from Germany, denim conscious consumers around the world desire jeans made in America and specifically in San Francisco.” They are very proud to still produce all their denim in the USA, from all the buttons to the rivets, all are made in San Francisco.
