We all wear jeans, but have you ever stopped to wonder what those little brass buttons actually do?
We all know that Levi Strauss was the man who first started making heavy-duty worker's pants out of canvas, but a man named Jacob Davis, a tailor, approached Strauss with the idea that certain weak point in the pants, such as the corners of pockets, can be enhanced if small rivets made of copper were inserted.
On 20 May 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patented the idea of the riveted pants and the two became partners in the Levi Strauss company. Ever since, the company has been producing clothing items from the eternal blue cotton fabric we know as denim.
