Appearing until the end of this month at the Thailand Creative & Design Center the “Denim 101: Fundamentals of Jeans exhibition presents the story of denim: from its origin, characteristics, and unique qualities, to how it became the jeans we know and love today. Ten creative production techniques are illustrated through manufacturing tools and samples from top global and local brands such as PRPS, Edwin, Diesel and Dior Homme”.
I recently had the pleasure of viewing this small showcase and if you have an interest in materials in general or jeans in particular it’s a recommended diversion. More from the TCDC:
The history of jeans goes back for hundreds of years and they are still popular today in the form of trousers made from cotton twill textile called “denim”.
Because of the ruggedness, jeans were initially used as uniforms for blue collar workers and soldiers. Over time, they became a clothing item of choice for people all over the world and have always evolved to keep up with fashion trends. Designers worldwide are finding ways to create a selling factor and a unique identity for their brands, including using modern technology or bringing back traditional tools and methods of manufacturing. These different strategies differentiate the origins and classifications of each brand.
