Episode Summary

EDIT
Levi Strauss
AIRED:
Denim is literally the fabric of America, and all because of the vision and perseverance of Levi Strauss. After immigrating from Buttenheim, Germany, Strauss headed west during the Gold Rush to sell his dry goods.

See how his dedication and vision transformed his simple work pants into the most popular clothing product in the world.moreless
