How Jeans Are Made

Ever wonder how jeans are made? And why they're so cheap? Here's how a garment factory make 'em:

It takes about 1.6 meters of denim fabric, several hundred meters of sewing thread, 6 rivets, 1 or 5 jeans buttons, 4 labels (usually imitation leather), and optionally a zipper to make a pair of jeans. An average jeans factory can make about 2.500 pair of jeans per day.

On average, it will take about 15 minutes and 12 steps to make one pair of blue jeans.

Levi's are made in northern Mexico in small towns where there's no other jobs to take and the minimum wage is around $5.2 USD a DAY. Most people who have worked in these shops for more than 20 years are all having lung problems because of the residue of the denim that constantly floats around the work area.

2.500 --- do you mean 2,500 (two-thousand five-hundred)or do you mean two and a half jeans per day? I'm guessing jeans would be a lot more expensive if it were only 2 and a half.
