    Selvedge Denim

    Originally called ‘self edge’, this is the narrow tightly woven band on either edge of the denim fabric, parallel to the warp. A selvedge end prevents the edge of the denim from unravelling. Older narrow shuttle looms produce denim where selvedges are closed, whereas on larger modern machines the weft yarn is cut, creating what is called a ‘fringe’ selvedge
