The word selvedge comes from “self-edge.” The edge of the denim has a clean finish; it will not unravel and is actually used as the outseam of the garment. A pair of jeans made from selvedge denim can easily be identified simply by looking at the inside of the outseam.

Selvedge denim is denim woven using old-fashioned denim-weaving techniques; most authentically woven on old looms.

Selvedge denim has become more desirable than non-selvedge for two reasons: the nuance of the denim weaving technique itself and the commitment to quality from the mills producing selvedge denim.
