Do you know what’s involved in making the pair of jeans you’re wearing right now? This fascinating video shows how WeSC brand denim jeans are made, from workers cutting thick stacks of denim material wearing metal mesh gloves, to expert machine stitching, to stonewashing, to drying and scraping, to adding rivets and labels.
Videos that show how something’s made in a factory always remind me of that feature on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, where they visit the crayon factory, or the trumpet factory.

    The video is purty, but I dislike how all the workers are minimized/objectified, leaving the focus on the machines and the pants themselves. I’m worried the video kind of white-washes labour and environmental realities! Then again, it’s good to see how much work goes into one pair of pants…certainly makes me appreciate them in a different way.

  2. The video is showing how much hard work is being done to made a single pair of jeans.
