Botanical Print No. 69
BOTANICAL PRINT No. 69
Love is in the air with this botanical kissed red hue. With a "crushed" Persian Red base hue, and marigold flowers steamed into the silk, this is a red hue with a hint of yellow peeking through.
This is a "light" botanical print, meaning, the botanical markings are subtle. Instead of tightly wrapping the flowers into the silk, the silk is crinkled and rolled with the flowers intertwined in the silk as it cooks. The crinkled look of the silk resembles crape paper.
No two ribbons are alike! Each ribbon varies in the marking they present.
Plant Dyes are more subtle and complex than those created by synthetic dyes. You are purchasing a "living color" that is unique and one-of-a-kind. While each lot of color is dyed in the same manner, with the same plant materials, slight variations & unique characteristics will make each ribbon special. Each ribbon is wound on a antique style wooden spool. 100% Habutai Silk Bias Ribbon. Silk weight 12mm.
Our habutai silk ribbons are washable and reusable! Machine wash separately gentle cycle/cold, or hand wash. Use mild pH neutral soap, plant dyes are "living" color that can be shifted by chemicals and drastic changes in pH. Tumble dry on low or hang to dry. Iron when just barely damp on medium heat on the back side of the fabric.
