Nowhere in San Francisco could the miners find
clothing which was strong enough to withstand the wear and tear of the rocky terrain where they looked for gold. The young immigrant went to a tailor and had all of his material, a light canvas called “denim,” made into pants in several sizes. He sold them all in one day, then began improving his new product. Leaming that the pockets often tore from the weight of heavy rocks, he got the idea of fixing the pockets in place with copper rivets.
As the years went by, the pants he made became extremely popular throughout the West. He died a wealthy man, having founded a company which today is known all over the world. It all began with a few rolls of material in the back of a wagon owned by a little peddler named Levi Strauss.
