Welcome to the Levi Strauss Museum
Do you like to wear jeans? Levi Strauss, the father of blue jeans, was born in this house in Buttenheim in Upper Franconia. He lived the American Dream: born as a simple Jewish peddler’s son he became a wealthy textile manufacturer.
A museum that has won several international awards tells his life story and the story of his famous blue trousers.
They have never been just a fashion item – until today, as a sign of a casual lifestyle, they embody youth, freedom and individuality.
Let yourself be carried away into the world of indigo and denim!
