Selvedge denim refers to a unique type of denim production.
Before the 1950s, most fabrics were made on shuttle looms. Shuttle looms produce tightly woven strips (typically one yard wide) of heavy fabric. The edges on these strips are made of continuous cross-yarn, which is passed back and forth through the vertical warp beams. Traditionally finished at both edges with a (most commonly red) contrasting warp. This woven or knitted edge prevents the fabric from fray, ravel or curl.
Nowadays most of the denims are created on projectile looms. They can create wider swaths of fabric and much more fabric overall at a much cheaper price than shuttle looms. However, the edge of the denim that comes out a projectile loom isn’t finished, leaving the denim susceptible to fraying and unraveling.
But thanks to the ‘heritage movement’ in menswear, selvedge denim jeans have slowly been making a comeback during the past ten years or so. Some big denim brands have gotten back to their roots by selling special edition selvedge version of their jeans. There are few factories in the world using shuttle rooms, Japan has the most remaining. That’s why Japan is the world’s top producer of selvedge denim.
At YOUR men’s department we have a lot of premium selvedge denim. Our dedicated crew is at YOUR service to help you choose and give you some turn-up tips!
