Mentioning cotton jeans is actually a bit redundant because all jeans
are made of cotton. Jeans are essentially sturdy trousers made of
denim or other cotton fabric. Dungaree is an earlier term for denim.
This is why some people refer to this type of pant as dungarees.
This type of pant is primarily worn as informal wear.
- Denim is a sturdy cotton warp-faced textile in which the weft passes
under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces a diagonal
ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. The most common denim
is indigo denim, in which the warp thread is dyed, while the weft thread
is left white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side
of the textile is dominated by the blue warp threads and the other side
is dominated by the white weft threads. This causes blue jeans to be
white on the inside.
- Dungaree fabric is a historical term for an Indian coarse thick
2/2 twill-weave cotton cloth, often colored blue. Originating in India,
it was known as Dungaree, before coming to be known as denim.
The term jeans appears first in 1795, when a Swiss banker by the name
Jean-Gabriel Eynard and his brother Jacques went to Genoa and both were
soon heading a flourishing commercial concern. In 1800 Massena's troops
entered the town and Jean-Gabriel was entrusted with their supply. In particular
he furnished them with uniforms cut from blue cloth called "bleu de Genes"
whence later derives the famous garment known worldwide as "blue jeans".
One of the worlds leading denim jean suppliers & innovators is Levi's.
