    Selvage on Batiks?

    I think there is just a couple threads that need to be trimmed off? Is my memory correct? Help me out.

    More than just a few threads. Hold the edge up to a light and you can see the difference in the weave. The selvage is more tightly woven, even on batiks.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".
