This magical ribbon was created in a time-intensive process of double dyeing and manipulation to create a unique blend of markings and hues. First, the silk takes days to intensify to a deep golden hue in a dye bath of marigolds, then it is dipped and folded multiple times in our organic indigo vat.
Each ribbon is a work of art. Use to wrap special gifts, adorn bridal bouquets, frame as an art piece, or use your imagination for all the ways to add natural color into your day.
Each ribbon is unique and markings vary.
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 12mm.
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.
