Selvedge denim is woven the traditional way on narrow shuttle looms. The name refers to the weave, which has one continuous cross-thread (the weft) that is shuttled back and forth. This creates the tight “self-edge.” Because it’s produced at slow speed, selvedge denim is soft and durable. .
Denim is the foundation of jeanswear. The hard-wearing twill fabric has been a favourite among workers for centuries, but it slowly became part of the fashion scene during the 20 th century. Denim is usually made of cotton.
Like other twill fabrics, denim consists of warp and weft yarns. The way the warp and weft yarns are combined is referred to as the weave, and it affects the appearance, feel, and durability of the fabric. The warp runs along the length of the fabric and the weft runs across it; on the front there are usually three warp yarns per each weft yarn, which is known as a 3/1 twill. Traditionally, only the warp is dyed with indigo, which is why denim is blue on one side and white on the other. . . #mihanejeans#finegoodssupply#blueshuttle#selvedge#unionspecial35800#localbrand#bandung#denimporn#denimhead #escortingjourney
what is raw denim? It’s exactly what it says, it’s denim in its raw form. This means that the jeans are not washed or treated when they are made, leaving that gorgeous raw indigo colour intact. Raw jeans often come in a selvedge denim as they are quite expensive and incredibly well made. They will most likely be in a rigid 100% cotton blend too, at their purest. During the dyeing process of the jeans, the natural cotton warp yarn is dipped into a lot of indigo dye baths, gradually turning it into a deep blue colour. As indigo dye can’t be completely fixed onto the cotton fibres, the colour will bleed and fade as long as the denim is worn due to movement. . in frame our weaver I article . . #mihanejeans#finegoodssupply#blueshuttle#selvedge#unionspecial35800#localbrand#bandung#denimporn#denimhead #escortingjourney
wear them for as long as possible is to avoid breaking down the fibres of the denim, to preserve the deep indigos and the stiff feel of the fabric that makes them so appealing to start with. over time, the fades build up in distinct patterns moulded to you, whiskers on the front (rise areas), honeycomb 🐝🐝 patterns behind the knees.

its quite common, in fact when you 1st get a new pair of jeans, you are supposed to wear them often in order to break them in. you are not supposed to wash jeans often, as that causes them to fade and wear faster.
