Denim as a Fabric for apparel manufacturing has penetrated most of apparel categories, whether we speak of women wear, children wear, men’s wear and furnishing fabrics etc. Its versatility enables it to be used in multiple end uses. Though we are aware of many uses of denim, we will look below at about 70 different looks created from recycled jeans, shirts etc. These are all the more interesting because of their strong Eco credentials having been created with the recycling/upcycling of denim.
