Ahimsa Gossamer is our new organic hand-loomed silk ribbon. This unique ribbon is an ethereal light weight silk, with a texture that allows it to hold a shape. It is in-between our "Tussar" and "Ethereal" silk ribbon. Organic Gossamer is a transparent weave with a slightly rough texture & just a hint of a pale peach tone, reminiscent of vintage lace coloring.

As seen in the images, this is a versatile ribbon. While the ribbon comes wound smooth of our wooden spools, just spritz with water and air dry for a stiff crinkly texture. Immerse in water and air dry to create a silk chord or rub the edges through your hands and create a feathery fray. 

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

color // Organic Gossamer, peace silk

Width // 1, 2, 3 inches

Length // all ribbons come 5 yards per spool.

Due to the hand-loom nature slight variations in the material and weave are always possible. This bias ribbon contains seams. There may be slight variations in width, this is more apparent in the 1 inch ribbon.

Care // 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 shape.
