      Work overalls, historically blue, owe their hue to an accidental discovery by Johann Jacob Diesbach, a Berlin paint manufacturer. Attempting to replicate Florence red lacquer, Diesbach mistakenly used potassium contaminated with animal blood, resulting in the creation of "Prussian Blue."

      This inexpensive pigment quickly proliferated in workshops due to its low production cost and camouflage of stains. Emblematic of the industrial revolution, blue overalls now adorn bearded hipsters, serving as both durable attire and canvases for Kilometre.Paris's navigations, embraced as the uniform by the Kilometre.Paris crew.
