The American pioneers and gold diggers worked extremely hard to realize their dream of happiness. Robust work clothing was therefore in great demand and jeans soon became a “hit”. In homage to the settlers and gold miners of the West, the Hummel Manufaktur has released the very first Hummel figurine wearing a pair of jeans – recognizable by the typical indigo blue and striking stitching. Sculptor Anette Barth created a
likeable young “Blue Jeans Wanderer”, who strikes out with a top hat on his head, a suitcase under his arm and his pocket watch, to seek happiness in the new world.
