The Story Behind The Banner
In the 1950s Levi's began to distribute beautiful denim banners with screen-printed advertisements on them to their dealers around the US, as a way to promote their denim to people outside of "Cowboy" and "Workwear" circles.
Using Cowboy motifs and slogans such as "The Wests Most Famous Brand" or "Look For The Red Tab" the company aimed to sell the romance of the American West (and their jeans) to regular folk.
Like anything Levi's related these banners have become highly coveted and collectable, original ones selling for several thousands of dollars online.
