Denim collection.


Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloths which are both cotton cloths but denim is woven and then colored while dungaree is woven from colored yarn. "Jeans" is a short for "blue jeans" which are invented by Jacobs Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873. Jeans as name for trousers come from city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton cordutroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured. Republic of Genoa exported the jeans throughout Europe. Weavers from the French city of Nimes tried to copy jean but could not. Fabric they eded up with became known as denim, litterally "de NNimes" of "from Nimes".

Denim or jeans is a versatile fabric to make clothing for men and women but also accessories to complete any oufit.
 It's very important to choose a ethical denim brand and avoid fast fashion and irresponsible production because the process of  washing and dyeing a pair of jeans needs a lot of water and has a polluting effect for the environment.

  1. Those buttons are very cool!
    But I agree on the difficulty of finding ethical jeans (and clothes in general)...stone washed jeans are the worst, the workers making those die really young because of all the toxic dust :(
