Who We Are

Behind Selvedge is a small team dedicated to the appreciation of the beautifully made and carefully considered.

Each with a background in textiles, fine art or design, the valuing and nurturing of textiles is second nature to everyone working at Selvedge. The core team of five (who all began their Selvedge careers as interns) work together on every aspect of the Selvedge story, from the very big to the very small. 

As an independent publication we have complete freedom to support and work with the makers and designers that really matter to us. We see this as a crucial element in making our six magazines a year, events and shop truly our own.

POLLY LEONARD
Founder of Selvedge Magazine
editor@selvedge.org


After gaining a degree in Design from Glasgow School of Art and a Masters in Fine Art from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia I taught textiles for ten years before launching Selvedge in 2003. I wanted to publish a magazine as beautiful as the textiles represented within its pages. I have a hands on approach to every aspect of the magazine and brand.

Thirteen years on my obsession with textiles is stronger than ever having branched out from the print magazine to our own shop and events program. I love meeting and talking to makers, subscribers and customers about our shared passion. If you are visiting London do drop by the shop and meet my wonderful team. We would love to say hello.



CLARE BUNGEY 
Head of Communications
communications@selvedge.org

I joined Selvedge as an intern during the final year of my textile degree and after graduation I found myself back again. Six years later – after sitting at most of the desks in the office – I now look after the partnerships, advertising and marketing.
How can I help?
I'd like to say you can ask me anything, I'd certainly do my best to help but specifically please get in touch about advertising, partnerships or marketing. If you are looking to reach an audience of textile enthusiasts then I can put together a tailor made campaign for you.
