I acquire these silk ribbons from a good friend who hand paints every silk strand within color batches. She has been painting on silk for close to 30 years, using tried and true recipes for colors based in her rich European heritage. The dyes she uses are "eco friendly".

I was interested in the silks when I first saw them from afar. I fell in love with them when they were in my hands. And when I used one to tie around my neck to hang one of my porcelain pendants from, I was in heaven…

Simple, beautiful, soft, breathable, highest quality I have ever found, and they can be used for just about anything imaginable. They are hand washable in a mild detergent if they are soiled.

Please avoid chlorinated pool water, salt water, or extended periods of direct sunlight exposure - as these are silk, and they must be cared for as such.

Super nice! exactly what I wanted for my pendant. The test will be, since I never remove it, how long the color lasts since, not really intended for full time wear but, soft to the skin, hangs very nicely, tied with a sliding knot, works perfectly. Delighted, will be back for more colors for other projects.
