Red Selvedge | The denim king

Posted on October 25 2016


After all what is red selvedge?

This fabric is known for: red selvedge (UK), red selvage (USA), or Japanese denim - once its creation originated in Japan. 

The red selvedge is developed in ancient looms and unlike the more common denim - the rollers are narrower and manufactured with a single wire run shuttles from one side to another in the loom to form a single and unique texture denim - no ends that can unravel.


This denim in a pure state is distinguished by extreme strength, durability - no fraying or peeling -  but also by known red bands accompanying the whole width of the fabric roll. To be produced in most cases in the traditional way (manually wooden looms), the red selvedge occupies a prominent place in the denim world.
