Botanical Print no. 54
Nature is captured in this earthy green botanical print ribbon. This ribbon is a "color shifter"; it changes tone depending on the lighting and surrounding color. The base hue shifts between a green olive and sage color.
If you need an exact color match, do not pick this ribbon... if you are looking for an earthy green to compliment your floral bouquet, this is for you
Botanical prints are created from hundreds of dried marigold flowers, whole and crushed.
This ribbon is created using a "direct contact" dyeing method where dried flowers are rolled into the silk, then steamed for hours to make a lasting imprint. This dyeing method creates a truly unique ribbon where each and every ribbon is one-of-a-kind.
Markings vary on each ribbon.
