AMETHYST is a mysterious and muted purple hue. This rich hue is marbled with lighter tones like an amethyst crystal with light shining through.
Throughout history, purple hues have long been a symbol or power, royalty, luxury, and some might say "a link to the divine".
Our palette of purples carry the undertone of red, as they are extracted from madder roots. With a bit of alchemy, these red roots are brewed into a magical array of rich purple hues.
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 10mm.
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.
