Gold Gossamer is a rich "antiqued gold" hue. Gold hues are revered color throughout history. This awe-inspiring hue is associated with illumination, love, courage, and spiritual knowledge. Worn by royalty, and the focal point of many master paintings, this rich gold will be a beautiful adornment to any bridal bouquet. The natural shimmer of our "gossamer" silk adds an air of opulence to this unique ribbon.
Our Gossamer silk is light and airy with a raw texture that adds a beautiful body to this handwoven 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 lightweight silk ribbon has a texture that allows it to hold its shape. It is a transparent weave with a slightly rough texture which is super light and airy. This ribbon will take flight with the slightest breeze! 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 "Gossamer" 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.
