Jeans, also known as denim, is a twill weave and is widely used for clothing. It is a particularly strong twill cotton fabric.

Denim is an abbreviation of the original French name Serge de Nîmes. In Nîmes, the fabric was first manufactured by the André family for the herders of the Camargue. The bluejeans got its name from the blue indigo dye and the French name Bleu de Gênes (Blue from Genoa) of indigo happened from India via Genoa to the rest of Europe.

Denim is used for the following garments:

Jeans, shorts, capri pants, overalls/dungarees, skirts, dresses, hats, jackets, shirts, swimwear, tailor-made-suits, boots, shoes, sneakers.


Bags, purses, belts, silver jewelry with denim accents.


Sofas, chairs, footstool covers, beanbag, office chairs, lampshades.

Denim is mainly used to make jeans clothing. The Americans Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis were the first to do this in the nineteenth century.
