*For cotton twill, cotton canvas, rayon: The fluffed edge of the selvedge is trimmed during production to prevent damaging the printhead. The trimmed fabric then undergoes pre-washing and pressing, which means that some fraying will be observed along the raw edges. During cutting and packing, we neaten the ends as much as possible before shipping it to you.
