This may sound astonishing to most of you, how jeans are connected and named after a tiger. Just to tell you that no tigers are killed or harmed in the making of these jeans. Let us really know what lion ripped jeans!.
In 2015, the group “the Mineko Club” created the special “Zoo Jeans” to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund and the local Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. They raised a minimum $3500 after selling three pairs of denim jeans that were gnawed and clawed by lions and tigers.
Members and volunteers wrapped denim fabric around tires and rubber balls and threw them into separate animal fences for lions, tigers and bears. The animals went wild and the resulting damaged denim was used to create four pairs of jeans — two were “designed by lions,” one by tigers and one by bears!! The ripped jeans were made entirely on animal intuitions and technique, no human intervention was involved.
The jeans were also sold on Yahoo’s Japanese auction site with a pair of lion-distressed denim selling for $1500! The Mineko Club, which has been around for over a decade, is dedicated to raising money and supporting the Kamine Zoo through holding events and selling zoo-related products.
