100 Years Of Denim Fabric
Featured Fabric of the Week: Denim
Denim is one of the most universally worn fabrics in the world. It has been a staple in much of Europe and the West for the better part of the last 100 years. This is a sturdy cotton warp-faced textile- the weft passes under two or more warp threads. Denim is used for a variety of reasons, ranging from fashion to sturdy work pants designed to protect the body and provide the utmost comfort.
The word 'denim' itself derives from French 'serge from Nîmes'- the city in which it first originated. In the United States, however, denim first gained popularity during the mid 19th century and has been a torrent of popularity within the fashion community. This fabric takes center stage for this week’s fabric of the week because of its versatility! Denim jackets can be easily paired with the coziest wool sweaters for a chic winter look or thrown over a hoodie if you’re shooting for more sporty chic. Artists all over the world use denim for its canvas-like material to create incredible artworks of bejeweled fashion and creative fashion paint designs.
Denim can be dressed down, or dressed up- universality is endless! If you’re looking for a fabric that is sturdy, durable, all the while being trendy, you have come to the right blog, my friend.
