Davis in the year in association with Levi Strauss & Co., and in 1871 and in the year 1973, it was patented by Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss. The trade of the Jean fabric took place in Italy, Genoa, France and Italy. The French term for Genoa is believed to be the origin of ”Jeans”. It is made from the fabric known as denim as the fabric is robust and can withstand in all the weathers.
