Levi's Vault

PhotobucketWhile waiting for a rendezvous near Levi's Plaza, I checked out The Vault in the public area of the Levi's corporate office. This is a small room displaying items from Levi's company archives, including clothing, marketing materials & other artifacts. A pair of jeans from the 1880s is currently on display, brown & mostly tatters. There's also a video about the conservation process, an interactive kiosk & a motorized display of vintage shirts. The company is currently acquiring more old & rare items for the archive, which is used by designers to research & recreate old styles. Foreign tourists & a visiting family were there when I dropped in, so this must be a known destination.
