A Peek Inside Levi’s Eureka Innovation Lab


Take a peek inside Levi’s Eureka Innovation Lab  (aka: where the magic happens) in a recent issue of Jean Stories, wherein Jonathan Cheung, SVP of global design, gives a VIP tour.

“You may not have heard of Levi’s Eureka Innovation Lab – but if you love jeans, you should know about it. From the outside, it’s an unassuming brick building in San Francisco’s Embarcadero. On the inside, though, magic happens. Here, the prototypes for new denim developments that shape not just the Levi’s we live in, but the entire industry – from washes, to treatments, to advances in sustainability – are made.” (See more)

Shailene Woodley In Levi’s Denim Shorts


Shailene WoodleyDivergent star who apparently loves saying “badass” (a little celeb trivia for you this afternoon) posed in front of the movie poster for the film she is featured in, wearing a pair of Levi’s Denim Shorts that seriously made us wish for warmer days. We love everything about this look, right down to how comfortable she appears in the ensemble. She paired the shorts with a simple leather jacket over a hoodie, and a sheer knit top.

Levi’s Develops Way to Manufacture Jeans Using 100% Recycled Water


Article via Ecouterre: Levi Strauss has developed a new way to make jeans using 100 percent recycled water. The denim manufacturer, which applied the first-of-its-kind process to 100,000 pairs of women’s jeans during a test run, says it saved some 12 million liters of agua, or enough to fill nearly five Olympic-size swimming pools. The technique, according to Levi’s, is the result of a new, third-party-verified water-recycling standard designed to ease the stress of garment production on freshwater supplies.

One of the company’s key factories, located in southern China, worked with Levi’s to engineer a system that treats and recovers all the water used in the finishing process for subsequent runs. “This water recycling can happen over and over, significantly reducing the overall amount of water used to make our products,” says Reza Hosseini, manager of environmental site and compliance assessment at Levi’s. “As long as the water meets our standards to deliver the quality you expect from our brands, it can be recycled multiple times.”

Till now, there has been a dearth of standards for water recycling and reuse in the apparel industry, adds Hosseini. “This is a company and industry first,” he says. “And we believe this innovation can help change the way our supplier factories use water.”

16 Denim Must-Haves According to Vogue


A new year and a new denim closet revamp is in order, no? Vogue just released their first denim must-haves list of the year, featuring a shortlist of head-to-toe denim gets for under $500.  From denim shoes by Michael Kors, Alexandre Birman and SEE by Chloe, to a refreshing take on the jeans skirt by Scully Denim, we’re certain you’ll find some inspiration here.   We think 2012 is the year that denim detractors may just be swayed to slip on a pair of jeans.  Because, after all, Vogue certainly thinks jeans are lust-worthy.

Vogue selects denim must-haves under $300.

Levi’s Overalls The Origin Exhibition


If you’ve ever wondered whether the first pair of Levi’s jeans ever made still exists, then watch this video of Levi’s Historian Lynn Downey, who, with white gloves, shows die-hard Levi’s aficionados what the first Levi’s jean–the Levi’s XX circa 1879, looks like during a special in-store exhibition at the Levi’s Japan store in Shibuya. She explains that the jean was called XX because it came from the XX denim produced at the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company (pronounced AM-us-scag). The historic artifacts are so valuable and the jeans so coveted in Japan, that the Levi’s Japan general manager hired a top security company to put the jeans under triple lock and key, not to mention a security detail for Ms. Downey during her whirlwind visit there.
