Celebration Of Buttenheim
Two years ago the historical Buttenheim village in Germany celebrated its 900th anniversary. This village is mostly known as the birthplace of Levi Strauss, the founder of Levi’s brand. He was the youngest child in a Jewish family, which immigrated later to America. The rest is history…
Levi Strauss Museum
Nowadays, the birth house of Levi Strauss is a Levi Strauss Museum. Here you can explore the history of the brand, and see some unique examples too.
Levi Strauss Figure
For the celebration of the Buttenheim village Playmobil developed a Levi Strauss figure. The figure is Levi wearing his suit, coat, and top hat holding a replica trading card from the Levi Strauss & Co. Archives. The image features a miner holding a pick and dressed in copper-riveted overalls or blue jeans and a matching denim riveted jacket.
Levi Strauss Leaflet
Inside the box, they also put a mini leaflet with information about the Levi Strauss Museum. You can read a brief history of Levi Strauss, and see some images of the museum too.
The Playmobil x Levi Strauss Buttenheim box is officially numbered as Playmobil 9295. It’s a collector’s item and shown here together with an original pair of 501s from the early 1900s, which is found earlier this year in a closed mine in the Nevada area. More details about this pair here.
