Antique White {Tussar}

$ 34.00

Classic bridal white. Antique White "Tussar",  has just a hint of color, creating a subtle warm white hue.

Virtuous, pure, immaculate, "white". While seemingly simple, there are a vast array of "white" hues. The perfect "white" is a delicate balance between color and the absence of color. Our organic handwoven silks have a natural golden sheen and we use walnuts to balance the tones and create a soft natural "white" hue. 

Our Antique White {Tussar} comes pressed, but to create a textural look, you can spritz with water to create a "crinkled" ribbon.

Created from silk cocoons sustainably gathered from deep within a protected forest. Artisans, rich in the craft of hand-looming, have created this material with skill and tradition that has been passed down for hundreds of years.

This unique ribbon has a beautiful natural sheen and textured finish. The edges are cut clean, but are delicate and can be easily frayed for a soft feathery feel. This ribbon is bias cut to create a natural flow and drape. Due to the flexible nature of the bias cut, the width can appear thinner when pulled tight. Each ribbon is wound on a antique style wooden spool. 100% Organic Tussar silk. Ahimsa, "peace silk".

Throughout the dyeing process, our ribbons are cooked in color and washed several times to ensure colorfastness. While hand washing is possible, due to the delicate nature of the material it is not recommended to maintain it's original texture. If needed, hand wash in lukewarm water with mild pH neutral soap, plant dyes are "living" color that can be shifted by chemicals and drastic changes in pH. Hang to dry. Iron on medium heat on the back side of the fabric.
