Denim Art - 28 picturesAdvanced Photoshop Contest
Past Sunday was the 183rd birthday of Levi Strauss, who founded the first company to manufacture blue jeans. Strauss lived in San Francisco during the Gold Rush years, where miners were complaining that their cotton trousers were tearing too easy. Levi then designed blue trousers from strong sailcloth with pockets strengthened by copper rivets. This is how blue jeans were born as we know them.
To celebrate the 183rd birthday of Levi Strauss, add jeans to any works of art (paintings, drawings, statues, etc.) one way or another. You can also use other clothing (skirts, jackets, hats, etc.) made from denim. Let's show that jeans were popular through all the history of mankind.
