Yesterday visited an very interesting exposition about the history of denim in the central museum of utrecht.
Here a part of a miners trouser from around 1873. The first year that levi strauss & co made their jeans found in an old mining shaft.
From the same firm an ad today but I have never seen this one before.
There was also a workshop where visitors could make their own denim designs from old and new material.
Here a result from such labour but I must admit made by a student of an art academy.
