    Denim

    April 7th, 2010

    Denim is a robust, sturdy cotton fabric used to make jeans. It is typically a woven material and often times dyed indigo, the standard color of the blue jeans we know today. Back in the 18 hundreds, ‘Denim’ was mostly used for work-wear while today it is found in all areas of fashion. The name ‘Denim’ is a french made-up word combining ‘Serge’ – the original used, robust fabric for work-wear – and its place of invention, ‘Nîmes’, a small town in France. When the fabric gained international popularity, the original term ‘Serge de Nîmes’ was abbreviated to ‘Denim’.
