Are Levi jeans made in West Virginia?

Levi Strauss (born Löb Strauß; February 26, 1829 - September 26,1902) was a German-Jewish immigrant to the United States who founded the first company to manufacture blue jeans. His firm, Levi Strauss & Co., began in 1853 in San Francisco, California.[1]


jeans were invented for the people building the railroads in California because they kept ripping their cotton slacks and needed something more durable.
