Garment processing has evolved greatly over the last 20 years. For example, the denim jeans of the past were worn in a rigid, starch-finished form.

Fashion trends now mean that jeans must run through various methods of conditioning, such as desizing, enzymatic stonewashing (with or without abrasive), decolorization, neutralization, brightening, and finishing.

Who is Making Denim?
There are many denim manufacturers and consequently many different styles and qualities of denim available on the market. In the United States, Cone Mills and Burlington Global Denim are two of the leading manufacturers of denim.

Swift Denim, founded in 1882 in Columbus, Georgia, supplies major customers like Levi Strauss, Vanity Fair, and Tommy Hilfiger.

Burlington Global Denim has factories in the U.S., India, and Mexico. Burlington expects further international partnerships to expand their complete process program, which starts with a bale of cotton and finishes with laundered jeans ready for retail.

Founded over a century ago, Cone Mills is the world`s largest producer of denim and ring-spun denim. It is also the largest exporter of apparel fabrics, with export sales comprising 26% of its total sales. Cone has representatives covering 40 countries, including the US, Mexico, Brussels, and Singapore.

Who is Making Jeans?
This question is perhaps the easiest to answer, as all we have to do is turn on the TV.  The marketing of jeans is the most public aspect of the denim industry, with brands that are easily recognized and extremely popular across North America and other parts of the world.

Calvin Klein has recently expanded its lucrative jeans wear and sportswear product lines with an underwear brand. The recent relaunching of their original white label/dark denim jeans, as well as their extensive lifestyle-oriented jeans wear collection give this company a very bright future.

Founded in 1978, Diesel Jeans offers 12 unisex fits in bottoms with a wide variety of washes, as well as a full men`s and women`s range of sportswear, active wear, and accessories.  Edwin is a brand that explores alternative fabrication methods with its hemp and wool-cotton blends, as well as its standard Japanese double-ring spun denim.

Lee jeans, founded in 1889, have a multi-generational market in denim and twill bottoms, and also feature a complete line of casual shirts and jean jackets.

Celebrating its 125th anniversary, Levi Strauss & Co. tells us to "expect the unexpected."  Levi`s Vintage Line as well as the increased focus on its Silver Tab collection and the move to selling shoes, jackets, and leather goods promises continued innovation.

Polo Jeans offers a full jeans wear and sportswear collection despite its recent launch 2 years ago. The brand also created a new sophistication with selvage, leather jeans, and black denim.
