MYSTIC BLUE. This luminous silk, with an almost iridescent appearance, is a new habutai weave in our collection. Spun and woven in India, the silky smoothness and light featherweight will send the ribbons flowing in the slightest breeze.
Though the edging has a clean-cut edging, this ribbon can easily fray on the edges for a feathery frayed look.
Dyed with indigo. Indigo is the most recognized natural dye throughout history. This divine hue holds deep meaning and tradition spanning many cultures. Indigo is a precious dye pigment, and we use only the purest quality.
Sample Swatches are a 9-inch length sample of our 1.5-inch width ribbon.
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.

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.
