After working on the project for six months, a 65-meter-long and 42-meter-wide pair of jeans was created in Peru. It now holds the Guinness Record for the world’s largest pair of jeans.
“8,600 meters of Peruvian denim fabric were used. More than 100 people, including workers from the Paris stores and the Peruvian company Kansas, participated in its elaboration and today it shines on the esplanade that is in front of the Mall del Sur in San Juan de Miraflores”, El Comercio said.
These giant pants beat the holder of this record, which was given to Tunisia on May 23, 2009, which was 50-meters long and 36-meters wide.
Natalia Ramírez Talero, the official adjudicator of the Guinness Record in the region, explained that for this title several points were required to be met: measurement, type of material that has been used, the dimensions and that the creation is made at the scale of a commercial jean.
This pair of jeans will be turned into 10,000 recyclable bags to help the decrease of plastic bags in Peru.
