JEANS

Jeans are the most popular kind of clothing in the world. They are popular almost everywhere -in Japan, France, Indonesia, Canada, and Brazil. Rich people and poor people wear them. Young people and even some old people wear them too. Why are they popular? Who made the first jeans

In 1849 two men discovered gold in California. Men from the rest of the United States and other countries hurried there to look for gold too. These miners needed good strong clothes

A young man from Germany named Levi Strauss arrived in California in 1850. He went there to sell things to the miners. He saw that the miners needed strong pants, so he began to make them. He used cloth that people make tents from. He put rivets on the pockets to make them strong because the men put rocks in their pockets. These pants were very strong and lasted a long time. The pants became very popular immediately

Later Mr.Strauss started making jeans from cotton cloth from Nimes, France. " De Nimes " means " from Nimes " . People called this cloth denim. Denim was popular in the fifteenth century. Christopher Columbus used denim for the sails of his ships. Sailors in Genoa, Italy, wore denim pants. The word " jeans " comes from the word " Genoa " . Mr.Strauss made the first jeans in the United States, but the idea and the kind of cloth came from Europe. The names came from France and Italy

Jeans were always blue until recently. People used indigo to dye them. Indigo is the oldest dye in the world. Most jeans have blue threads going across and white threads going up and down. These two colors make denim look different from other kinds of cloth

Today Levi Strauss and Company makes jeans in large factories. Other companies all over the world also make jeans. Usually one worker makes just one part of the pair of pants. Someone makes the front of the leg, and someone else makes the back. Another puts in the zipper

Why are jeans popular? In the United States, they are the only kind of traditional clothes. In other countries, young people wear them because they want to look modern. Jeans are a sign of youth and independence. Everybody wears jeans because everybody wants to be modern, young, and independent
