About Levi Strauss & Co.

Our style may be as fresh as tomorrow, but we go way back — to 1853.

Since its introduction in 1986, the Dockers® brand has been perfecting khakis — and the essential goods to go with them — for men and women all over the world.
But the Dockers® brand is proud to be part of Levi Strauss & Co., a business with a history that goes back even farther to Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis creating the first blue jean in 1853. Throughout our long history we’ve inspired change in the marketplace, the workplace and the world. Levi Strauss & Co. is dedicated to making authentic products in a way that also gives back to the community and supports the people who produce our clothes.

Our Values

  • Empathy

    Walking in Other People’s Shoes
    Empathy begins with paying close attention to the world around us. We listen and respond to the needs of our customers, employees and other stakeholders.
  • Integrity

    Doing the Right Thing
    Integrity means doing right by our employees, brands, company and society as a whole. Ethical conduct and social responsibility characterize our way of doing business.
  • Originality

    Being Authentic and Innovative
    The pioneering spirit that started in 1873 with the very first pair of blue jeans still permeates all aspects of our business. Through innovative products and practices, we break the mold.
  • Courage

    Standing Up for What We Believe
    It takes courage to be great. Courage is the willingness to tell the truth and to challenge hierarchy, accepted practice and conventional wisdom. It means standing by our convictions and acting on our beliefs.

    Social Responsibility

    Social Responsibility

    We take a lot of pride in our products - and how we make them.

    Our company is committed to building sustainability into every aspect of how we operate.
    That’s why Levi Strauss & Co. commissioned a lifecycle study of a pair of Dockers Original Khakis to study the full environmental impact of our pants.
    What did we learn? Some of the biggest impacts occur in two places we don’t control – the cotton fields and your hands after they leave our shelves. So we’re working to promote sustainably grown Better Cotton and sharing tips to help you change your laundry habits: wash less, wash in cold, line dry when you can, and donate unused clothing so it can be used again. We’re also partnering with our factories to use less energy and water in the production process, and reducing the environmental impacts of shipping our clothes.
  • The people who make your clothes

    In 1991, Levi Strauss & Co. published our Terms of Engagement, protecting the rights of the workers who make your clothes. This groundbreaking document also ensures safe, healthy and human working conditions. We’ve long been an industry leader in worker rights and continue our efforts to improve apparel workers’ lives, both in and out of the factory.
  • Giving back in our communities

    In 1854, a year after starting his company, founder Levi Strauss donated to a local orphanage. In that spirit, our employees have been giving back to the communities where we operate for more than 150 years. Their involvement strengthens communities from San Francisco to Singapore, and their volunteer efforts help local organizations. We encourage employees to support charitable organizations with their time, talent and money by offering them paid time off to volunteer.
    Social Responsibility is deeply embedded into our products, our culture and our business
