The bag looks great and functions well, and shipping was faster than I expected. No complaints here!

Amber was great, quick to respond, even showed me how the color options between the lining and the outside material looked. Quick to ship too. I've been using the chalk bag for a little bit now and it's GREAT!!! The fleece interior seems to do a better job at keeping the chalk in the bag compared to previous chalk bags I've had.

I purchased the game of thrones map as well as the Zelda bag and both are incredible. You can really tell that they are made well. And Amber answered all my questions really quick. I definitely recommend

About

Our Edge, Why we create.

The standard production process begins with a sketch of the desired design, a pattern to achieve said design, and then an efficient pattern layout (without modifying the shape of the pattern pieces). Despite efficient layouts, standard production generates an average of 15% textile waste.
In zero-waste production methods, 99% of the textile material is used. The pattern pieces have been strategically developed to intentionally not produce waste. The easiest way to see this difference in our chalk bags is to flip them upside down. Unlike the round industry standard, the base of our bags is square. The edges of each piece during cutting also cut the edges of the adjacent piece, leaving no scraps as waste.

Our bags are designed to express individuality so you can push your individual limits. Life on the edge can be dangerous, but at Selvedge the edge is a responsible place to be. #FindYourEdge

Frequently asked questions

When does my bag actually get to me?

Since every bag is made to order, it takes anywhere from one to five days for me to create (think "processing") your chalk bag.
From there, you can select standard shipping (takes 5-8 days) or 2-day shipping. You will get an email notification the day your bag is finished and shipped.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All bags come with a 3x3" selvedge sticker.
Please let me know in a message with your order if it is a gift and I will attach a retail hang tag with extra info about zero-waste production to the bag so your friend knows how cool it is!

Custom and personalized orders

I love making custom chalk bags because every climber has their own unique edge. Please send me a message with any custom idea you have.

The chalk bag I want is sold out. Will it ever be available again?

In most cases, yes. Please message me if you see a bag from a review that is not currently listed and I will try to make it for you.

Are there other fleece lining options available?

Yes! We have numerous additional color and fun print options that may not be listed in every listing. If you have an idea of a different lining that you see in another listing, send us a message!
