Selvage or Selvedge comes from the phrase “self-edge” or the natural edge of a roll of fabric. Selvedge denim can only be woven on shuttle-looms, which are rare because they are the vintage machines that Levi’s sold to the Japanese when they upgraded to modern, high-capacity looms. The Japanese have continued the artisanal methods using these vintage looms that produce better quality, more expensive denim. These looms weave fabric with one continuous cross thread that is passed back and forth all the way down the length of the bolt. As the weft loops back into the edge of the denim it creates this “self-edge” or selvedge.
Check out these sweet lightweight cotton and linen blend Selvage denim for Spring Summer 2013.

Denim is the perfect for any season!
As the fall chill works it’s way further into November I can’t help but think about some of my new favorites from our Fall 2012 collection.
First up is the Maverick slim fit, straight leg, button fly jean – sewn using denim from Japanese mill Kuroki, a 12oz raw plant indigo selvage denim, 100% cotton, dyed with true raw plant indigo, woven on 29″ vintage American shuttle looms. These are limited edition jeans and each pair are signed and numbered.
Next up is the 39 North – moleskin ‘jean’ jacket that is 100% cotton with suede collar and quilted lining.
Check them out while supplies last.
