Product name: 100% cotton denim fabric
100% Cotton Indigo Denim
The word denim originates from a durable material known as serge, which was first manufactured in de Nîmes, France, by the André family, and was originally called Serge de Nîmes, which over time was shortened to denim.
Denim is a rugged cotton twill textile, where the weft threads go under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving process produces the familiar diagonal lines traditionally found in the material. Denim and the cotton fabric called duck are often confused with each other; however duck does not have the diagonal stripes that are found in denim which is the distinguishing difference.
Another characteristic associated with denim is that only the warp threads are dyed, whereas the weft threads remain white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the fabric shows the blue warp threads, and the other side shows the white weft threads. This is why blue jeans are usually white on the inside and this is also the reason why their fading characteristics are so unique in comparison to most other fabrics.
Denim has been in use in America as far back as the late 1700’s. Denim was traditionally colored blue with indigo dye to produce blue "jeans". The modern use of the word jean originates from the French word for Genoa, Italy (Gênes), the place that the first denim trousers were made. Today, denim is available in a wide range of colors.
