Ocean Gold is a marbled ribbon, muted indigo blue with subtle swirls of gold. These ribbons are individually dipped and manipulated in the dye bath to create unique variations between each ribbon. The overall look is a dusty ocean blue with subtle hints of gold. Markings are varied and some are more intense than others.
Our current batch is a more solid tone. Antique gold, over dyed with indigo to create a muted Ocean Blue hue.
Note, our current batch is "unpressed" (see second image).
Our colors are created from sustainably sourced and harvested Plant Dyes. 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 hand crafted antique style spool designed exclusively for Silk & Willow. Our spools are made from Acacia wood which is a fast growing renewable wood source.
Each spool holds 3 or 5 yards of 100% Habutai Silk Bias Ribbon.
