The Prison Blues Story

In 1989, a 47,000 square foot factory was constructed at Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in an effort to bring work and training opportunities to adults in custody. Shortly thereafter, the Prison Blues® factory began operation. For the past thirty-plus years, Prison Blues has manufactured American-made denim products for hardworking people throughout the world. Prison Blues Brand Clothing is truly "Made on the Inside to be Worn on the Outside".
