Celebration Of Buttenheim

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.
