This listing is for one (1) yard of vintage French velvet in an antique, elephant grey and is 5/8" wide. This is a gorgeous ribbon from the 1930's to 1940's. 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 rare, especially in this condition. Perfect for trim on clothing, as choker jewelry velvet or for any sewing project, as it's made of pure rayon and is taffeta backed, very soft and lies beautifully. In perfect, unused vintage condition.

My pictures show the ribbon off the bolt and a closeup of this gorgeous ribbon.

We have just 8 yards of this ribbon remaining.

My grandmother who passed last year, was a seamstress for most of her life and she has shared her vast ribbon and trim collection with us. We have just come across a trunk full of French velvet in every color and width imaginable, which I will begin listing a bit of everyday. If there is a color or width that you are looking for, convo me!
