Add some pizzazz to your next project with silk ribbon. It hooks up great into loops of any height. Get a nubby look with short loops or make long lops for fringe.
Scrap edges from sari manufacturing and vintage saris are hand torn are approximately 1/2 inch width and sewn or knotted together for a length of approximately 25 yards per skein. The ribbon is mostly silk but may have metallic threads, rayon, or some cotton with lots of texture variation.
The multicolor ribbon has brilliant bold jewel tones as-is from the sari fabric with lots of variation in cloth and a little heavier than the others. The ribbon can be cut to get the strips of color that you need or just hook straight from the skein.
The single color skeins are overdyed ribbons from different cloths giving a piece with patterns and other colors not subtly mixed, like spot dyed wool. Skeins vary from each other even with the same lot. We will try to match skeins ordered at one time.
Embellish or hook a whole piece in silk. Hook it high for big loops or low for a nubby texture. Consider hooking long loops for a fringe.
This ribbon is a fair trade item from India, helping women provide for their families needs.
