Do you ever wonder how jeans are made?
After visiting Özak Tekstil, the LINC Istanbul class knows not only about the textile industry in Turkey, but also how denim jeans are produced. After an interesting presentation from a company representative, the class was able to walk around the floors of the factory where denim jeans are conceived.
We saw how denim jean parts were cut and sewed, how they were stonewashed, how they got the wrinkle look, and much more. The class was astonished to see how lasers burned material onto the denim to create designs and figures on the jeans. We were all blown away to see how stripes were burned onto the jeans to give it a natural look.
With the whole production in sight, it was obvious why quality denim jeans cost so much money. We saw the production of mostly Hugo Boss jeans. This picture was taken in a showroom of the company’s products. I hope to visit more textile companies soon because this experience was just amazing!
