Levi’s, probably the most iconic jeans brand in the world. Everyone knows it and many of us own a pair of Levi’s jeans. In 1847, German-Jewish immigrant and textile seller Oskar Levi Strauss emigrated to the United States, together with his mother and two sisters. They eventually moved to San Francisco in 1853 to try their luck at the time of the Gold Rush.
It was only in 1872 that the iconic jeans were created, when tailor Jacob David contacted Levi Strauss to apply reinforcements on crucial parts in (denim) trousers, by the use of rivets.
A patent application was made by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss for this, nowadays indispensable, invention in 1873. In doing so, they created the trousers now generally known as jeans!
Levi’s values innovation and therefore continued innovating after the launch of the first pair of jeans. For instance, there are several classic jeans, such as the Levi’s 512 and the Levi’s 501. Besides jeans, this trendy brand provides much more. For example, Levi’s t-shirts and Levi’s sweaters and sweatshirts.
