Deriving it's name from the French town of Nimes where it was first produced, Denim is a heavy weight cotton twill fabric. When we think of Denim Fabric, most people will associate the material with the popular fashion item, Jeans. Invented in 1873 by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss, jeans were first intended as workwear for cowboys and miners who required a sturdy Jeans Fabric to protect their skin when carrying out hard manual labour. Jeans experienced a surge in popularity during the 1950s when they were worn by Hollywood legend James Dean and quickly became a symbol of youth rebellion. Since then, jeans have been a staple in the world of fashion and are worn on an almost daily basis by everyone from babies to older people and can be purchased in a huge variety of colours and styles including bootcut, straight leg and the fashionable skinny jean.
Now, with our new range of excellent quality Denim Fabrics you can create your own Denim items including jeans, jackets, shirts and accessories. Priced from as little as £7.99 per metre, our Denim Fabrics are available in a variety of weights and colour options to suit any of your Denim projects.
