This listing is for one (1) yard of vintage French velvet in a dark violet color, and is 5/8" wide. This is a gorgeous ribbon from the late 1800's to early 1900's and made of silk and rayon. The ribbon is buttery soft both in drape and the velour itself. I have a number of velvets from this time period and they are extremely rare, especially in this condition. Perfect for trim on clothing, as choker jewelry velvet, for soft furnishings or for any sewing project, as it's made of rayon and silk, is very soft and lies beautifully. In perfect, unused vintage condition.

My pictures of this gorgeous ribbon capture the buttery texture and the exquisite color.

We have 15 yards remaining.

My grandmother who is in her 90's now, was a seamstress for most of her life and she has shared her vast ribbon and trim collection with us. We are also lifelong collector's and have way more than we will ever use. I will be listing many more vintage ribbons in velvets, satins, silks, grosgrains, wovens, ombre's and metallics, so do check back often. You may also convo with special requests.
