About SoARVI

On Etsy since 2017

Light and delicate, like the wing of a butterfly or a tiny bee - this is SoARVI.

I'm inspired by the everyday little beauties of nature, only a few people notice. I dye and hand-paint delicate fabrics with natural dyes and my own hand-drawn patterns. All the colours and all the motifs I use derive from a feeling or a memory I've experienced in nature - all hues resemble me of the colour of butterflies and gem-like bugs...

The ribbons are hand-torn from the finest organic habotai silk. So light, that it flows in the air freely from the gentlest breath of wind. I hope that when you touch SoARVI ribbons - feel their soft, featherlight texture and see their divine shine - you will immediately feel as if you were standing on a meadow, summer breeze playing with your hair. Just as I feel, creating SoARVI fabrics.

Me and my family "commute" between Boston, where my husband was born, and Hungary, where I was born and raised. To keep manufacturing costs and prices low, our ribbons are made in and shipped from Hungary.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Do you accept wholesale orders?

Yes, we are happy to stock up florists, decorators, accessory designers, stationery designers and other makers around the globe.

For Florists, Stationers, Designers and Makers of all kind

You are free to use SoARVI ribbons as a raw material in your art. You are not bound to state explicitly that your product was created using Soarvi ribbons, however, we are very happy if you do so.

For Retailers

Retailers who would like to sell Soarvi ribbons can only sell the items in their original condition (original length and packaging) branded as SoARVI.
We do not manufacture our ribbons as OEM, that is, you cannot remove SoARVI branding elements and substitute your own.

Sizing details

Ribbon widths

Each of our ribbons are hand torn to the indicated approximate width. There might be a maximum of 0.5 cm difference (plus or minus) compared to the inditated width.

Our ribbons are available from 1 cm to 10 cm width. If you can't find a ribbon with your needed width, don't hesitate to write a private message so that we can create a private listing for you!


Ribbon lengths

- We sell our ribbons in 5 m and 10 m batches. Each of these 5 and 10 m ribbons come on a wooden spool.

- Occassionally we sell our ribbons in smaller lenghts (1 to 4 m). These items don't come on a wooden spool.

Care instructions

Are the ribbons washable?

Yes, silk can be washed and most of our dyes resist washing. Please wash in cool water, without any detergent if possible. Our dyes are pH sensitive, therefore the ribbons might change colour if washed with soap or non-neutral detergents.
Some of our selected ribbons are dyed with pigments reached out of wild plants and other natural sources. These might change or lose some of their colour if exposed to direct sunlight or during washing.
Please note that with washing, the raw edges of the ribbon might fray even more. If this occurs, just cut the loose threads with scissors.

Custom and personalized orders

Are you available for custom orders?

Yes, all of out items are handmade and are basically MADE TO ORDER in our studio, therefore they require some time to make. Specify your preferred colours, ribbon widths via private message.
Please note that there is a minimum order of 5 m per colour/width.
Due to the hand dying process, differences might occur in the colour shades - even within one batch. All of your ribbons are handmade, therefore there might be minor flaws in the materials. We feel this only adds to the natural beauty of our products. Please take this fact into consideration before placing an order.
Please allow for 10-12 business days for making your ribbon (plus shipping).

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our 5m and 10m ribbons come on a wooden spool, in a beautiful packaging.

Please write a private message if you would like additional gift wrapping or a personal note added to the package.
