one day strauss heard a miner complain that he couldn´t find clothes strong enough for the work he was doing strauss got an ideia he quickly took some of his canvas and made it into pants these pants were what the miners needed ln one day strauss sold all the pants he had made.
strausswanted to improve his pants he wanted to make them even better he bought a fabric that was softer tha canvas but just as strong. this fabric came frim nimes a city in france and was called serge de nimes the miners liked this fabric they called it´´denim (from de nimes) and bought even more pants from strauss
however denim had no color because of this the denim pants did not look very interesting and they got dirty easily to solve these problems strauss dyed the denim blue.
