The story of jeans begins in the city of Genoa, in Italy, famous for its cotton corduroy. Jean fabric from Genoa (at that time) was in fact very similar to corduroy; Genoese sailors started to use it to cover and protect their goods on the docks from the weather.

During the Republic of Genoa, the jeans were exported by sailors of Genoa throughout Europe. Gênes, the French word for Genoa, may therefore be the origin of the word "jeans". In the French city of Nimes, weavers tried to reproduce the fabric exactly, but without success. However, with experimentation, and through trial and error, they developed another twill fabric that became known as denim, literally "de Nimes". Only at the end of the nineteenth century did jeans arrive in the United States.    -Source: wikipedia.org

Levi Straus and Jacob Davis

It was recently discovered that the first jeans made by Levi Straus and his partner Jacob Davis were made of brown cotton duck (a type of bottomweight fabric) after 1873. Finding denim a more suitable material for work-pants, they began using it to manufacture their riveted pants. The denim used was produced by an American textile manufacturer, but popular legend states the denim was obtained from Nimes, France.

While Levi Strauss is credited with the advent of of jeans in the United States, the popularity of jeans has risen through the years, and now there are many manufacturers of jeans worldwide.
