About

THE POETRY OF SILK

Harmony with nature, mindfulness, quiet imperfect beauty, and rawness describe the process and philosophy behind The Poetry of Silk.

Every step is slow-crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

By choosing The Poetry of Silk eco-friendly plant dyed silk ribbons you are also saving our waterways from unnecessary pollution. I use eco-friendly packaging. My labels are tree-free and their adhesive is compostable. I also print on lokta paper, one of the most eco-friendly, renewable, non-tree papers. I love sustainable products and caring for the environment, I am glad you do as well!

Handmade in my studio in Orlando, Florida, USA.

How many silk ribbon spools will I need for my bouquet?

These are my recommendations, but feel free to select your own. You can always mix and match silk ribbon colors for a one-of-a-kind look. Brides can use each silk ribbon to its full length, or either cut or loop to create folds for a medium or short length ribbon.

SMALL BOUQUET
Option 1 — 2 spools 2.5" wide
Option 2 — 1 spool 2.5" wide + 1 spool 1.5" wide

MEDIUM BOUQUET
Option 1 — 2 spools 2.5" wide + 1 spool 1.5" wide
Option 2 — 3 spools 1.5" wide

LUSH BOUQUET
Option 1 — 2 spools 2.5" wide + 2 spools 1.5" wide
Option 2 — 3 spools 2.5" wide + 1 spool 1.5" wide

How many yards of silk ribbon do I need per invitation?

Most calligraphers and wedding invitation designers use 1 yard to adorn each invitation.

Do you offer samples?

My plant dyed colors may vary from batch to batch, for this reason I do not offer samples. Even if the color doesn't match precisely, they always look beautiful and add another layer of thoughtfulness to wedding invitations, programs, and bridal bouquets.

Do you offer custom colors?

Though I hand dye limited edition colors, I do not offer custom colors.

Do you offer wholesale discount?

Though I do not offer wholesale discount, I offer a limited edition 30 yards spools at a modest discount.

How are your silk ribbons made?

Following a wabi sabi lifestyle, every step is slowly crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to tearing it organically into ribbons embracing imperfection, lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” - Lao Tzu

You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. Each silk ribbon is one of a kind and may have nuances, marbling, speckles. Plant dyeing embraces imperfection and find beauty in its authenticity.
