Pennine Adder - Selvdedge Denim
Originally used for workwear, denim has since become a staple within the fashion industry. During the mid-1950's, the demand for denim increased dramatically. To comply with demand, many manufacturers sold the traditional yard wide shuttle looms; mostly to the recovering Japanese economy. Then, replacing them with a much more efficient, modern and wider projectile looms.
The projectile looms were cheaper in creating denim however, unlike a shuttle loom, the edges of denim were not finished, and so susceptible to unravelling and fraying.
Denim made on a shuttle loom, known as 'Selvedge Denim', is named so because its edges are finished and therefore considered of higher quality. It is recognised by its distinctive white and red edge.
