The story of denim continues—into the newly formed United States! David and Reed explore the development of mass production textiles in the early days of America and what life was like in these mill towns of 1800s New England. And then we discuss a person who unknowingly created the conditions that lead to millions of people being enslaved and probably caused the U.S. Civil War (and then he knowingly invented a faster and cheaper way to build guns).
All that and more on this week’s episode! If you want an easy entry into the world of denim, check out our selection of Tellason Stock jeans and jackets available on the Heddels Shop—10% off now with the code BLOWOUT at checkout.
