“Thanks! Perfect match—will send you a picture of the finished gown. Most grateful,” Ann Page, Massachusetts
Our taffeta (plain weave) ribbon is 100%
silk from China and is offered in 2 widths - 1/2” (13 mm) and 1-1/4” (32 mm) and in a veritable endless array of colors. The color chart shown to the left is what we always keep on hand, but we can custom dye ribbon to match your project! We currently use modern dye stuffs and mordants.
While we take great care to make sure that our ribbon is well-rinsed and treated against bleeding, it will, like any other hand-dyed article, bleed if you get it hot enough and wet enough. Likewise, if an article is washed too many times, eventually the setting agents will wear off and hot/humid weather may cause bleeding as well. With this in mind, it is recommended that anyone buying our ribbon be careful not to wash it very often (and only in cold water) and to go with dry-cleaning whenever possible.
