denim, dungaree, jean(noun)
a coarse durable twill-weave cotton fabric
A textile often made of cotton with a distinct diagonal pattern.
Origin: From the phrase serge de Nîmes, after the French town of Nîmes, where denim fabric was originally produced.
a coarse cotton drilling used for overalls, etc
Origin: [Of uncertain origin.]
Denim is a rugged cotton twill textile, in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the fabric, which distinguishes denim from cotton duck. It is characteristic of any indigo denim that only the warp threads are dyed, whereas the weft threads remain plain white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the fabric shows the blue warp threads, the other side shows the white weft threads. This is why jeans are white on the inside and what makes denim's fading characteristics unique compared to every other fabric.
