zengcheng

This is Xintang, China. If you own a pair of jeans, there is a high chance they were made here. What used to be a small rural town is now home to over a million jeans factory workers. This town now turns over more than 260 million pairs of jeans a year- that is more than a third of the world’s supply. The streets are full of old men and women cutting loose thread from jeans- and this is just the smaller businesses cashing in on a much larger industry.
