The self-edge on a bolt of raw fabric is its reinforced outer edges, woven from special yarns that are sturdy enough to prevent the fabric from unraveling. The self-edge is sometimes incorporated into the construction of a garment in place of seam binding or other finishing techniques. Some firms mark their name or trademark at frequent intervals on the self-edge. Also known as “selvage”.
