Description

 French Blue, the perfect "Something Blue" for your wedding day!  

 Our "tussar" ribbon has a natural shimmer, making this a magical addition to your bridal bouquet! Beautiful on its own, or pair with our classic French Blue for layers of texture.

Crafted from hand-loomed, organic "peace silk" and dyed with our custom blend of plant materials to create a unique ribbon with a classic French Blue hue.

Tussar silk has a textured feel. This translucent material is a light, sheer weight with body and texture, unlike any other ribbon. Each ribbon comes with a clean-cut edging for a classic look; you can repeatedly rub the edges to create a custom "feathered" edge.

Details

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 unique ribbon has a beautiful natural sheen and textured finish. 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 Tussar silk. Ahimsa, "peace silk".

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 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.
