We have run a quick line of stitching across the top of the silk lengths so you can easily attach these to the stems of your flowers. You could easily cover the attachment point by wrapping one of the lengths around the stems a couple of times and let the end hang free. These silk ribbons are bias cut which gives them a dramatic drape. Because of the bias cut, there is a seam every two yards in the continuous spool (which means seams are not uncommon nor unexpected) and the raw unfinished edges will naturally soften with wear. These Earth Silk spools are made by hand in our Seattle studio. Our hand dipped dyeing process produces a unique look with subtle qualities that cannot be found in traditional ribbon dyeing. Our process creates almost zero waste and generates a stunning work of art.

Our ribbon is produced by hand in our Seattle studio. The hand dipped process produces a unique look that has subtle qualities that cannot be found in traditional ribbon dyeing. In conventional dyeing the threads are dyed in a vat and then loaded onto a loom where the ribbon is woven together. In hand dyeing all of the action happens while the spool is tightly wrapped, and that pressure influences where and how the dye is absorbed. We hope you enjoy our ribbons as much as we like making them! Our process creates almost zero waste and generates a lasting work of art.
These silk ribbons are colorfast (after washing) washable, dry-cleanable and are 100% silk. We highly recommend ordering samples if your project is color sensitive. We also recommend washing a sample to see how it behaves before working the silk into anything that may be exposed to water.
