Selvedge


Porque será... é cara... demais... ainda assim não lhe consigo resistir! Felizmente raramente aparece no quiosque da esquina.
Why is it i just can't resiste? Its expensive... and i am glad I can't always find it!
In a woven fabric, the selvage (or selvedge) is the uncut edge of the fabric which is on the right- and left-hand edges as it comes out of the loom. As such it is 'finished' and will not fray because the weft threads double back on themselves.
Very often fabric near the selvage is not usable as it may have a different weave pattern, or may lack pile or prints that are present on the rest of the fabric requiring that the selvage fabric be cut off or hidden in a hem.
