About Selvage Denim:
Selvage denim refers to denim produced in the traditional method using classic shuttle looms.
This method has stood the test of time and is the best way to ensure exceptional quality.
Selvage denim is characterised by a tight weave and hardiness. Denim created with this method will last longer and wear better over time.
‘Selvage Denim’ was termed this because of its distinguishing weave. As the denim leaves the loom, both edges are finished with sturdy bands down each side. The bands create a ‘self-edge’ or as we now know it – ‘Selvage’. The selvage provides the denim with a protective edge to prevent it from fraying.
Selvage denim is a hallmark of a premium fabric you will enjoy for years, and a welcome change from the lower grade, mass produced and comparatively flimsy denim that flood the market today.
Our range of denim is produced on our 98 Selvage Looms, or occasionally, more specialist fabrics are handpicked from one of our trusted artisan suppliers.

Nobody Else Gave Me The Service I Got From Them
Had the pleasure to meet Peter and Danny at Magic Vegas (International Apparel, Garments & Accessories Show) in Las Vegas, USA. As a newbie to denim they took their time to explain all about selvage denim to me. Walked around the show and nobody else gave me the service I got from them. On the last day I went back to their booth and placed an order with them. They helped me select the fabric, explained the wash etc. We designed the accessories together. After 60 days my order was ready. I’m very happy to have met such nice guys who look out for newbies like myself.
