JEANS: A FABRIC DATING FROM THE 16TH CENTURY
Originally intended as work clothing, jeans have stood the test of time and are now an integral part of our fashion wardrobe. If the term “jeans” appears in the 1800s, its history begins when Levi Strauss, a fabric merchant living in San Francisco in 1853, brought back the canvas from Nîmes, in the United States, to sew his first jeans. Patented in 1873 by the latter and Jacob Davis, a tailor friend, the jeans were a resounding success. The “Serge de Nîmes”, as it was also called, was a fabric made from wool and silk, which was born in the eponymous French city, in the 18th century.
The origin of jeans actually dates back to medieval times in Europe, where it took shape from a blend of cotton, wool and linen and was called “futaines”. Quickly exported to England from northern Italy via the port of Genoa, this canvas took the name of jean or jeane , referring to its shipping port. Recognized at the end of the 16th century, across the United Kingdom, especially in Manchester, jeans became one of the most produced models around. Its blue color as we know it was certainly brought in during its crossing to the United States in the mid-19th century. It is in particular following the numerous establishments of cotton in America that the jean becomes one of the most manufactured and widespread materials of its time.
