Jeans for Islamic Prayers

The Italian company Al Quds Jeans has designed and is marketing a pair of jeans made especially for Muslims. The jeans are "baggy with a high waist to allow freedom of movement during the repeated kneeling for Islamic worship. They have extra large pockets for glasses, trinkets and prayer beads and also feature discreet green seams at the top of the belt loops, in honour of the faith's sacred colour." In order to insure that the jeans will be made by Muslims, they are manufactured in Karachi, Pakistan. Some Muslims object to the name Al Quds, which is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, because it connects a holy name to a pair of jeans.
