My pictures show the ribbon on the wooden bolt, a closeup of the texture of this lovely ribbon, just some of the woven ribbon that I have available and finally a picture of the ribbon prior to unwrapping.
I have 100 yards of this gorgeous ribbon, so if you need more, please convo me and I can set up a special listing. I can also put together samplers, you pick the colors.
~~~Vintage Woven Ribbon~~~
I have a huge collection of vintage woven ribbon in gorgeous colors. This ribbon is just saturated with beautiful, rich color as French ribbon is dyed, layer upon layer with as many as eight different colors, making each ribbon unique and unrepeatable. Woven ribbon is exactly like any ribbon, the only difference being that this is thinner like a silk. It was used many years ago to bind or cover the seams of garments, hats and the like, decades before the machine serge stitch. When you look inside a high quality vintage garment and the inside is just as beautifully made as the outside, woven ribbon is the secret. Woven ribbon comes in every color imaginable as its purpose was to match the fabric that it was used with. It is beautifully woven yet durable, distress-able, washable, dye-able and best of all, 100% pure, natural Rayonne, as they would say in France. Very soft in hand, with amazing workability and perfect if you wish to strip (to reveal lighter and lighter color) or over-dye to add another color to the ribbon or use as is. This particular ribbon belonged to my grandmother who is in her 90's and was a seamstress all of her life. All of my woven ribbon was made in France in the 1930’s and 40’s for the garment industry, so it is the finest quality ever made. Give it a try for your vintage ribbon work, clothing restorations, package ties, bows or whatever you create with your vintage ribbon, you will love the possibilities!
