In which country jeans were invented and why are they called that


Many people have worn jeans at least once in their lives and may have wondered in which country they were invented and why they are called that? In this post, we will tell you about the history of the origin and the name of the famous pants.

The history of jeans creation

The first jeans appeared in the 19th century in the USA, they were made by sailors from waste canvas, reinforced with double stitching at the seams and rivets. Initially, the trousers were white, later they were dyed with cheap blue dyes. Jeans were predominantly work clothes for farmers, movers and workers, and the pants also had five pockets, which made it easier for wearers to use these trousers.

The word "jeans" comes from the American "jeans", which in turn originates from the Italian "gene", which migrated to Old French as "jane" and from there passed into English. The cotton twill fabric of diagonal weave "jean" was known in Europe back in the 16th century.

The first jeans cost $1.46 cents.

Every year jeans began to become more popular, absolutely everyone began to wear them: men, women, children. Later, the fashion for low-rise jeans appeared, and then for high-rise jeans. Now jeans (denim) are made not only into trousers, but also vests, shorts, jumpsuits, sundresses and shirts are especially popular. This is how many people's everyday clothes have become. These are probably the most popular pants in the world.

'Denim trousers from Kuntukka,' my father used to say. Probably, they had such a saying.
