What is Dederon? Dederon is very similar to the famous Perlon. Both were made in Germany, but Dederon was Perlon's equivalent made in the old East Germany - DDR - and behind the Iron Curtain. Like the spy that came in from the cold, this 1980's slip is actually quite cute! How did Dederon get its name? Well, it is a play on words on the name of the old East Germany before reunification - "DDR" - pronounced in the German way "De-De-R-On" - the 'on' at the end being a copy of the western 'Perl-on'.
