Jeans are the first choice especially among the youth when it comes to bottom wear. A brand tag is usually associated with social status which is why youngsters prefer branded jeans more than non-branded jeans. An international brand tag adds an extra edge because of the quality and precious perception. But in the case of jeans brand, Indian jeans brand is giving a tough competition to the international jeans brand domestically and internationally.
Jeans of major brands are easily available in India nowadays. But, before the 80s, jeans were accessible only to a handful of royalists in India. After the globalization of the world, some international jeans brand started coming to India.
But jeans became the most popular clothes in the 90s when Indian company Arvind Mills made the first Indian jeans. The Indian Jeans brand has recently established itself, but some of the Indian jeans brand attracted global customer due to its fine quality, elegant design, varieties, budget friendly and etc.
You will be amazed to know that that 4 of the world’s top 10 jeans brands are Indian jeans brands. After globalization, India became the target market for many international brands. But Indian entrepreneurs in the textile industry limited international brands to one corner. The denim market in India is booming, in 2018 the market stood at Rs 29,203 Cr but is expected to reach 91,894 Cr by 2028.
