Zoo Jeans

Got a passion for fashion? Well, so do the animals at the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. A volunteer group called the Mineko Club teamed up with the zoo to create the Zoo Jeans which are truly like no other. These distressed pants are ripped and customized by none other than the tigers, lions, and bears of the zoo!

The handlers basically wrapped the animals’ favorite toys–rubber balls and old tires–in denim and gave it back to them. After they’re done gnawing and clawing at their denim-wrapped toys, the denim was then used to make the Zoo Jeans.

Only a limited number of jeans were made. They were sold at a charity auction to raise funds for the Kamine Zoo and for the World Wildlife Fund. You can check out the clip below to see the making of the Zoo Jeans, starring the ferociously playful animals from Kamine.

One thing Hazel loves more than geeky stuff is writing about their awesomeness. She graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering but has always wanted to be a writer. As luck and a whole lot of work would have it, Hazel got her cake and is eating it, too: sifting through endless paperwork during the day while blogging for various tech and gadgetry blogs during the night. She also established her own gadgetry blog recently, which you can check out at Gigadgetry.com.


  1. Really? So this is what is considered “fashion” these days? Buying brand new jeans that are already full of holes and ripped to shit? Idiots will buy anything these days…
