I'm Aaron Tucker, and this is: how are blue jeans produced? Blue jeans are basically made out of cotton. That's the first raw material incorporated. The cotton is picked, the cotton is cleaned, the cotton is combined with other fibers in order to create a thread. Once you've got this thread together and you have your material made for your denim, the denim is then dyed. Before it's dyed it's dipped into a sodium hydrosulfite. This turns the cotton a yellowish color, but of course you don't wear yellow jeans, then the jeans are dipped into the blue indigo. The sodium hydrosulfite is necessary because the blue indigo is not water soluble and will not attach to the denim. From there the jeans are produced. They're cut, they're made and then they're covered in a cornstarch, to give your jeans that stiffness that makes jeans, jeans.
