Blue Jeans

Not many people in the developed, and in some of the less developed, countries of the world haven’t had contact with denim jeans.

But what happens to all the used, worn out, ripped jeans that people don’t use anymore?

With a bit of imagination you can make trendy stuff. Now I don’t mean that you should copy DeeFashion’s stuff, don’t want to get in trouble, do we? But you get the idea.

Yes, those blue jeans can live again.
