Announcement   Welcome to my shop!
I'm a flower farmer based in Somerset growing traditional cottage garden flowers and foliage. I have a small part of my plot now dedicated to growing dye plants for my silk ribbons.
Currently I am creating hand dyed ribbons in Habotai silk, silk Georgette, crepe backed satin silk and bamboo silk fabrics.
The ribbons are all hand dyed by me in my cottage predominantly from plant dyes foraged from my plot.
Each ribbon is unique and although I endeavour to recreate the same recipes for each dye, there may be a slight variation in colour from batch to batch. There may be the occasional fleck or marbling along the length of the ribbon ....such is the nature of a unique hand dyed product!
The price quoted is per metre. Click on quantity to add how many metres you require. The maximum continuous length is 4 m in Habotai and 2m in other fabrics. Please contact me if you require a longer continuous length and I will see what I can do!
For 2017 I will be introducing styling table runners in cotton voile and silk georgette.
From time to time I will be introducing one off bundles of complimentary colours. These bundles will consist of several metres of different types and widths of silk and may include a cotton styling cloth. These would be of particular interest to stylists and florists for creating that fantastic photo shoot.
I am always available to create bespoke colours for you if you send me a photo of your desired colour. Please contact me. Thank you so much for looking at my shop. Alison
