Discover a world of amazing alternative dungarees
Dungarees have a fascinating history. The word 'dungaree' was first mentioned in the 1600s, referring to a cheap, coarse, thick cotton cloth, often coloured blue but sometimes white, worn by poor people in a dockside village called Dongri near what was then called Bombay. The Hindi name of this cloth was 'dungri', exported to England to make cheap, robust working clothes. The English eventually began to call dungri cloth 'dungaree' and the rest, as they say, is history. To discover all our brilliant alternative dungarees, click here or search our site for 'dungarees'.
