The selvage 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 selvage 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 “self-edge”.
