Denim woven in original shuttle looms comes in narrow length fabric with finished edges, called selvedge. After the world war, when projectile looms which could produce broader fabric were introduced in the U.S. for efficiency gain, Japanese mills acquired the old shuttle looms. Today, you can obtain heritage selvedge denim fabric only from select Japanese mills. It is a rare item, which can get rarer still as the limited number of shuttle looms in existence get worn out.
