The Dry Selvage programme is a special concept with our best selvage denim from Japan, Italy and Turkey. We have selected the highest denim qualities, denim with cashmere, hemp and organic cotton. This line is our core, the heart of our brand, made for all lovers of Nudie Jeans and dry denims, for all those impassioned fans out there and for all those who understand and embrace the passion of denim.
Selvage denim is produced on oldstyle shuttle looms. These looms weaves the fabric with one single cross thread (the weft) that is passed back and forth, rather than individual threads for each weft weave. As the weft loops back into the edge of the denim it creates a self-edge, better known as selvage.
The edge of selvage denim doesn’t fray like more common denim qualities. Those have separate wefts which leave an open edge that must be stitched. Shuttle looming is a more time-consuming weaving process that produces denim of a tighter weave. This process also results in a narrow, heavy weight fabric. To minimize consumption, the whole fabric is used. This makes the selfedge visible when the jeans is turned up. The colour of the thread in the selvage is often red.
Our four top of the line qualities are delivered in a denim tote bag, containing a special Nudie Jeans selvage book. All dry selvage jeans have the selvage edge coin pockets and silver trims.
