Keep it Simple
Make a quality product with a strong attention to detail and be friendly. With that in mind, each item is handcrafted by me in my Oak Ridge studio with love and care. Sure, it takes longer this way, but quality and character are the ideals, not mass-production. I suppose I'm old-fashioned that way. I just truly believe there is something to be said for knowing exactly where something was made, and by whom.

Following an epic solo bicycle trip that took me 4,000 miles across the United States, I moved to Nashville in the winter of 2009, intent upon learning the craft of making clothing, and took a job at a local tuxedo shop. That June I was asked by a coworker (and daughter of the owner) to make neckties for her father and brother for Father's Day. I had never made a tie before, but I gladly took the commission. The ties were a success, and within a couple months I was receiving commissions to make custom neckties for weddings. Soon, word continued to spread, and in the spring of 2010 I filed for a business license, secured a wholesale account, and began my own line of handcrafted neckties. Within a year, I added a few more wholesale accounts, built an online store, quit my job, and jumped into this business full-time.

1. What is Selvedge denim and how do I care for and wash Selvedge Denim?
Selvedge denim is loomstate denim. With qualities entirely unique to itself and the construction process. Allowing it to fade and whisker custom to each individual wearer. The way denim has been made for 150 years. It has never been washed and therefore will potentially bleed a bit of indigo depending on how dark the indigo is. At Felding Co we recommend soaking your jeans in cold water to loosen any excess indigo and also take out the minimal amount of shrinkage which may occur before you hem them.
We also recommend washing them only on cold and never ever dry them. Only hang dry them. Also only wash when it is absolutely necessary, because this actually decreases the desired fading and whiskering you will get from wearing them over time. The custom and unique look everyone desires from selvedge denim will thus be diminished. If you wear them and take care of them they will last for a long time.
