How Denim Jeans are Made

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We love sustainable fashion around here, and for me a big part of sustainability is appreciating the materials and craftsmanship behind what’s in our closets. In a world of fast fashion, it’s easy to forget that that $5 t-shirt or $25 pair of jeans is more than just a fashion statement. Not only did labor and materials go into making the fabric but many hands went into sewing that garment, possibly under questionable conditions, before it made its way to the store shelves.

Swedish company WeSC Denim produced this video, and the process you see is in one of their factories. They frequently visit production facilities to make sure that their denim is not being produced in sweatshop conditions, so what you see in this video might not be typical of the denim you’d buy at the big box store. You can check out their social and environmental missions here.

This video gives you a glimpse of the time and skill that goes into crafting a pair of jeans. Check it…

As a seamstress, I got a real kick out of seeing these processes, especially the cutting tools that they use. Also, the speed and precision of those industrial sewing machines had me drooling a little. It’s so different from the way that I cut and sew here in my craft studio!

Style is and has always been a reflection of our dreams, imagination, and aspirations for ourselves and our world. In a time of growing consciousness about how our choices literally do change the world, style is more important than ever. Ultimately, it is not simply awareness and concern that matters – it is our inspiration and our willingness to embrace intriguing new ways of caring, living, and being that will create our future. Feelgood Style is about sharing that inspiration and dreaming with joy about that future.
