Selvedge is unashamedly biased towards the handmade. This bias is at the heart of what we bring to our readers, and our workshops, socials and fairs are built around a passion for nurturing and promoting makers. The Selvedge World Fair is not only for textile aficionados - it will be a vibrant celebration of cloth: a festival that engages a new audience with the importance of the fabric of all our lives.
To ensure high standards of craftsmanship, exhibiting artisans will be required to submit an application demonstrating that their work either celebrates a traditional craft or offers an innovative interpretation of one indigenous to their home country. There will be a rigorous three stage selection process during which museum curators, academics, and retail experts will ensure quality and integrity as well as a balanced and exciting consumer experience.
