From Networx' Adam Verwymeren:

There are few things more comfortable than a beloved, broken-in pair of jeans. But some day, when the denim’s faded and the seams have split and the cuffs have frayed, you’re going to be faced with a harsh reality: All good jeans must someday meet their end.

But rather than let that precious fabric go to waste balled up in the back of your closet or, worse yet, getting tossed in the trash, you can (and should) repurpose and reuse those precious pants.

The durability, heft and stylishness of denim make it a great and versatile fabric for a variety of projects and purposes. Here are some great uses for your old jeans.
