Selvedge Denim refers to the way that the fabric itself is being made. Most denim was produced using shuttle looms before the 1950s. These looms create tightly woven or intertwined pieces of heavy fabric. The edges on these pieces are typically about one yard wide and are finished with bands down each side to ensure that the fabric does not fray, curl, or unravel. The edges come finished already from the loom. So, because of the production process, denim produced on shuttle looms have a "self-edge," naming the fabric, "Selvedge."
