A Brief History
Denim became an American pop icon during the ’50s when Hollywood idols James Dean and Marlon Brando popularized the glam textile as a symbol of youth rebellion. Most would also know that it was first heavily manufactured in the mid-19th century by Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss. However, denim—the textile—actually originated in the French city of Nimes. Thus, the name “denim”, in fact, came from the term serge de Nimes or from the Nimes. Fast forward to today, most—from punk rockers to presidents, cowboys to convicts, hippies to haute couture models—use it for everyday use. It has definitely broken down social boundaries and I’m sure it will continue to do so till the end of time.
