Here is some stuff you should know about selvedge denim so you too can be a smarty-pants. Before the 1950’s most fabrics were made using shuttle looms. These looms produce tightly woven strips of heavy fabric and the edges on the fabric were finished with tightly woven bands to prevent, fraying raveling or curling. Denim made from these looms was referred to as having a “self-edge,” and thus the name “selvedge” denim was born. Most jeans on the market now are made from projectile looms that produce a wider fabric at a cheaper price than shuttle looms. This has resulted in the unsightly bottom of the jean fray these fabrics just don’t stand the test of time.
