Denim has been used in the United States since the mid 19th century. Davis , a tailor from Nevada, manufactured the first pair of rivet-reinforced denim pants.
At this time, clothes for Western labourers, such as teamsters, surveyors, and miners, were not very durable. His concept for making reinforced jeans was inspired when a female customer requested a pair of durable and strong pants for her husband to chop wood. When Davis was about to finish making the denim jeans, he saw some copper rivets lying on a table and used the rivets to fasten the pockets.
Soon, the popularity of denim jeans began to spread rapidly and Davis was overwhelmed with requests. He soon sold pairs to workers in need of heavy work clothing. Nevertheless, because of the production capacity in his small shop, Davis was struggling to keep up with the demand.
Davis's proposal was to patent the design of the rivet-reinforced denim pant, with Davis listed as inventor, in exchange for certain rights of manufacture. All denim goes through generally the same process to creation.
Dry or raw denim contrasted with "washed denim" is denim that is not washed after having been dyed during production. Over time dry denim will fade, considered fashionable in some circumstances.
During the process of wear, fading will usually occur on those parts of the article that receive the most stress. On a pair of jeans, this includes the upper thighs, the ankles, and the areas behind the knees. After being made into an article of clothing, most denim articles are washed to make them softer and to reduce or eliminate shrinkage which could cause the article to not fit properly after its owner washes it.
This process is known as sanforization. In addition to being sanforized, "washed denim" is sometimes artificially distressed to produce a "worn" look.
Much of the appeal of artificially distressed denim is that it resembles dry denim which has faded. In jeans made from dry denim, such fading is affected by the body of the person who wears them and by the activities of their daily life.
This process creates what many enthusiasts feel to be a look more "natural" than artificially distressed denim. To facilitate the natural distressing process, some wearers of dry denim will abstain from washing their jeans for more than six months.
In particular, the United States, Zimbabwe and Japan are popular sources of cotton for making raw denim. Dry denim also varies in weight, typically measured by the weight of a yard of denim in ounces. Heavier denim is much more rigid and resistant to wear, but can also take a larger number of wears to break in and feel comfortable. Patterns of fading in jeans caused by prolonged periods of wearing them without washing are a way of "personalizing" the garment.
Selvedge or selvage is the edge of a fabric as it comes from the loom. Selvedges are woven or knit so that they will not fray, ravel, or curl. Selvedge denim refers to a unique type of selvedge that is made by passing one continuous cross-yarn the weft back and forth through the vertical warp beams. This is traditionally finished at both edges with a contrasting warp most commonly red ; that is why this type of denim is sometimes referred to as "red selvedge. Shuttle looms weave a narrower inch fabric, which is on average half the width of modern shuttleless Sulzer looms.
Consequently, a longer piece of fabric is required to make a pair of jeans from selvedge denim approximately three yards. To maximize yield, most jeans are made from wide denim and have a straight outseam that utilizes the full width of the fabric, including the edges. Selvedge denim has come to be associated with premium quality jeans, which show the finished edges from the loom rather than the overlocked edges that are shown on other jeans.
Denim was originally dyed with a dye produced from the plant Indigofera tinctoria , but most denim today is dyed with synthetic indigo dye. In both cases, the yarn undergoes a repeated sequence of dipping and oxidation — the more dips, the stronger the color of the indigo. Rope dyeing is considered the best yarn-dyeing method, as it eliminates shading across the fabric width.
In rope dyeing, beaming is done twice. Denim fabric dyeing is divided into two categories: Indigo dyeing produces the traditional blue color or shades similar to it.
Sulfur dyeing produces speciality black colors and other colors, such as red, pink, purple, grey, rust, mustard, and green. Skinny jeans made from red denim. Stretch denim incorporates an elastic component , such as spandex.
This creates a certain amount of "give" in garments made from stretch denim. However, this feature will shorten the wearing life of the garment. Starting with the model year, American Motors Corporation AMC offered a regular production option consisting of a Levi's interior trim package. Although the car's jean material looks just like the real thing, AMC used spun nylon that was made to imitate denim. This was because real denim fabric is not tough enough for automobile use and cannot pass fire resistance safety standards.
