The Origin Story:

Indigo denim traces its roots back to the 19th century, where it was initially crafted as durable workwear for miners and laborers. The indigo dye, derived from the indigofera plant, not only lent the fabric its characteristic deep blue hue but also imbued it with a unique ability to fade over time, telling the story of its wearer's adventures. Coming into the mid-20th century we saw the rise of indigo denim as a symbol of rebellion and counterculture. From the iconic James Dean in "Rebel Without a Cause" to the denim-clad rebels of the 1960s, blue jeans became a statement of nonconformity and freedom.
