History of Jeans: Jeans were born in the 19th century as sturdy workwear for miners and laborers. The term "Toile de Nîmes" pays homage to the city of Nîmes in France, where denim fabric was first produced. Over time, jeans became a symbol of rebellious culture and personal expression. They gained popularity through fashion icons such as James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, propelling jeans to iconic status. Today, jeans are a fashion staple, and Orcival continues this tradition by offering superior quality jeans that celebrate the history and authenticity of this iconic garment.

The American denim's history in Japan
The story of American denim weaving machines being transferred to Japan dates back to the 1950s. At that time, the United States was the undisputed leader in jeans production, with iconic brands dominating the market. However, as time went on, the demand for jeans began to decline in the United States, while Japan saw a rise in popularity for this casual attire.
Japanese manufacturers recognized the opportunity to combine their country's traditional craftsmanship with American jeans manufacturing techniques to create high-quality products. Some Japanese manufacturers were able to acquire old American weaving machines, often considered obsolete in the United States but still functional and valuable to the Japanese.
These weaving machines were known for producing superior denim due to their sturdy construction and ability to create fabrics with unique texture and appearance. Japanese artisans took great care to master the weaving techniques and replicate the distinctive details of classic American jeans.
As a result, Japan became a true center of excellence for the production of high-end jeans. Japanese brands gained fame for their meticulous attention to detail, use of high-quality denim, and artisanal approach in crafting their jeans.
Today, Japanese jeans are renowned for their durability, slim fit, and vintage aesthetics. Denim enthusiasts around the world actively seek out these artisanal Japanese jeans for their exceptional quality and unique style.
This story illustrates how the transfer of craftsmanship from one country to another can give rise to new artisanal traditions and preserve the legacy of American denim weaving machines, while adding a distinctive Japanese touch to the denim industry.
