Plant dyed silk ribbon in 'Soft copper'. Warm tones mix to give a slightly marbled look.
Each type of silk has a different tone and texture, giving various 'looks' from a smooth shimmer, to translucent crinkle, to deep texture.
Available in three different silks:
Habotai: a soft, smooth, lightweight silk with a lovely shimmer and drape. Torn and frayed for that natural look.
Silk noil: has a slubby, speckly, raw silk texture. Low lustre but having a nice fall and drape due to its weight. It takes most dyes really well so offers richer shades. Hand torn and frayed.
Mousaline: a very, fine, semi-opaque silk with a soft drape and crinkled texture. Hand torn and frayed.
Habotai: 3cm x 200cm (£8.00); 4cm x 200cm (£9.00); 5cm x 200cm (£10.00); 5cm x 190cm (£9.50)
Mousaline: 3cm x 185cm (£7.40); 5cm x 185cm (£8.25)
Noil: 3cm x 200cm (£8.00); 5cm x 155cm (£7.75); 5cm x 200cm (£10.00)
Every precaution has been taken to ensure that the ribbons are colourfast in cold water, but we would advise carrying out your own tests for colourfastness if this is an issue. If you do need to wash the ribbons, please do so in cool water and, if necessary, only use a pH-neutral soap as the ribbon colours can be affected by chemicals or a change in pH due to the nature of the plant pigments used in the dyeing process. Note: plant food is a chemical and will react with the silk colour; please dry your stems before wrapping with silk ribbon.
Please store the ribbons in a dark environment.
The ribbons are photographed in natural daylight for colour accuracy; however, the colours on your monitor may differ slightly to those in real life due to your computer settings.
Due to the organic and handmade nature of this product, small imperfections may be visible in both the fabric weave and colour. Embrace those imperfections as each ribbon is beautiful and unique!
