20 Ways to Repurpose Denim Jeans

Denims are one of the strongest fabrics there are. I guess it is the reason why jeans are usually more expensive that any other type of clothing: they last longer. But of course we can’t wear them forever – the kids outgrow their denims, sometimes we accidentally ruin parts of our clothing, sometimes they simply become too old for style.

Now it would be wise if we could maximise the monetary value of those denims by repurposing them. Aside from cutting them to make denim shorts, we’ve collected other ideas you could try doing with your old jeans :)
