History of Lee Cooper

Jeans are always being misinterpreted as rough, cold and western cowboys. This should not be the case. If we trace back the origin of 'Denim', the history goes all the way back to Europe. 'Denim' came from two French words 'de Nime' which means 'of Nime', where Nime is small town in south of France. The fabric was originally invented from Nime and as a result it is called 'Denim'. Italians used the fabric for the canvas for their carriages and exported the fabrics amongst other European countries. The fabric was then used for rough workwear in the mid 18th century. Levi Strauss, a German, emigrated to America in the year 1850 brought the idea of using the canvas fabric for the gold miners' workwear in West America.That is how the history of jeans started.

Between the period of late 18th century and beginning of 19th century, jeans were used as workwear clothing. In the period of 1960 to 1970, wearing jeans was a symbol of reistance to the traditional moral principles as well as emancipation of women in the society. Not until the beginning of 1980's, jeans was developed into a strong fashion trend in sport wear and casual wear.

Being an European origin, 'Denim Jeans' should have a touch of the European taste and character. A flavour of romance, warmth and most of all fashion shall be added onto a Jeans Brand.

Lee Cooper, a brand established in the year 1908 by Morris Cooper in England is now introduced to Indonesia as a Classical, Authentic, European and most of all Quality brand.
