What is Selvage Denim?

According to Dr.Denim's tag on my Selvage jeans, Selvage denim is woven on old, slow and rare 30" shuttle looms. Combined with high quality long fiber cotton, the looms give you a grat historic fabric through which you will eventually get your own story told.

Here's an article I wrote on Day 163 about Selvage denim and another on Day 108 about Chain Stitching, in case you're interested. Along with two articles on Wikipedia about Selvage denim and Selvage.


  1. does it say on the tag where this one is made?sounds like a Japanese make, wondering if i am right.

  2. You asking about the Selvage Denim or the actual jeans?
