In this article, we are going to talk about what are jeans and what is the process of making them. Also, we are going to talk about the different trends of womens jeans in the market itself.

What are jeans?

Jeans are made from the material called Denim or also called Dungaree. The term jeans is a reference to trousers that are blue and are fitting in size. The first-ever jeans were invented by Jacob Davis and his partnership with Levi Strauss in 1871. Then the pattern of the jeans was decided, and the material and colour and was made in the year 1873.

The blue jeans is not a new thing as earlier it was worn by the working-class people. Nowadays, this is a fashion, and many people and models are styling it in different ways. Jeans refer to the type of sturdy clothing which is made from the toughest wool called gene made in Italy.

Jeans can be made of two types. It can either be full denim jeans or full cotton jeans. Jeans were designed for those people who are in the working-class early. Now in the year 1950, it is used for casual wear in films by Marlon Brando and James Dean. They first introduced jeans in the movie, the wild one and the rebel without a cause. Then from the 1960s it has reached in the mind of teenagers and is worn frequently.

What is the manufacturing process for jeans?

Here is the step which is involved in the manufacturing of the jeans.

  •  Dyeing

Traditionally jeans were made in the colour blue by adding the Indigo dye to them. Because of which approximately more than 20,000 units of dyes were produced yearly for consumption.

  •  Pre-shrinking

These were made in 1962, and these jeans did not have to be shrunken down after they were made. This meant that the customer did not have to wash the jeans to shrink them more.

  •  Used and distressed looks

Used means to wash the jeans using a chemical called acid wash powder or and other powder. The Distressed look means the tearing of jeans from some places to make them look stylish.

  •  Sandblasting

Consumers who order special jeans are made by rubbing them with sandpaper to give them a good finish. Sandblasting is done by either washing it with chemicals or rubbing it with sandpaper.

  •  The environmental or humanitarian impact

This means that an average pair of jeans takes around 919 gallons of water during its whole life cycle. The production of jeans without sandblasting or washing them can cause degradation in quality. Also, you will have to treat the waste jeans more carefully as they can create clogs or hazards if not handled properly.

Most of the jeans which are not used anymore are thrown in a shredder and made into small pieces. That is done to avoid any blockage or clogging it will make after it is thrown in the sewage or waste line.
