Selvedge Denim

SELF-EDGE, equates to the self binding edge of a fabric woven on a shuttle loom, where the shuttle fills the weft yarn by passing back & forth between both sides of the loom. This leaves one continuous yarn at all the edges so that the fabric self seals. These looms usually create a smaller width of fabric, which is just about right for a pair of jeans!

Selvedge denim is a rarity in todays world of mainstream manufacturing.

Selvedge denim has traditionally been used only for menswear. But we're here to shake things up! ;)
