Shoe polishing cloth


Established 1890

Founded in 1890, Selvyt is a leading brand in polishing cloths for the jewelry, watchmaking and silversmiths trade, and the maker of the most iconic shoe polishing cloth. Selvyt has been suppliers of shoe polishing cloths to the Military for over 100 years, providing military boots with an immaculate, signature spit-shine. Used by the finest craftsmen, it has become the benchmark shoe polishing cloth by which all other products are judged. Selvyt is currently owned by Edmund Bell Ltd (est. 1855), a British textile company with a focus on producing fabrics for apparel wear. Selvyt is by far their most iconic product.
