VERSATILITY: RIBBONS FOR EVERY OCCASION

We know we are biased, but we are consistently amazed by the projects our clients create.  Luckily, many of them are eager and excited to share said creations and generously send photos our way upon completing a project.

Jewelry designer Amanda Ace creates one-of-a-kind pieces and delivers them to clients in beautiful packaging (if we do say so ourselves) featuring our handmade papers and ribbon.

We recently worked with another client who created this gorgeous bridal bouquet using our silk ribbon, shown here in her wedding day portrait.  Any of you brides and creative folk reading this; be sure to share your work with us so we can feature it here.

WEARABLE RIBBON

It appears we have officially segued into the fashion industry: we have launched our very first silk ribbon wrap design!  This is a one yard length of our hand dyed silk that is finished with two pointed ends and a seam stitch along the entire length.

Our modern take on the classic “fairy ribbon” design is available in over 150 color options.  These Earth Silk ribbons are made by hand in our Seattle studio. We measure, mix, dye, rinse, wash, dry, fold, iron, stitch and sew to bring you this great wrist accessory.

The wrap is a thoughtful, eco-gift idea and an easy and affordable accessory option to elevate any ensemble.  After years of inquiries, we are excited to offer to offer a hand dyed silk ribbon option to our jewelry-designing and accessorizing clients worldwide!

Hydrangea Silk and Flowers

We just shipped this custom ribbon to a happy bride.  She wanted to order our pressed hydrangea flowers but she needed a silk ribbon to match the hue of the flowers.  We have over 150 colors in our hand dyed silk ribbon line but none that were quite the right shade, until now!

We offer custom dyed silk ribbon with a low three spool minimum purchase. Once we have your color matched, chances are it will become part of our growing line of silks. For those customers looking for an exclusive ribbon for product packaging or a signature line we can offer you a five year license of your custom color if you pay a $400 development and licensing fee. We will keep your design out of our product line while it is under license.

CUSTOM PROJECTS

What do we do?  We make paper and ribbon, right?  Piece of cake.  Two products, easy peasy.  Well no actually, we have over four thousand inventory items currently featured on our website and thousands more when you consider the custom work we offer.  This includes everything from the aforementioned Accommodation Cards to Memorial Invitations.  Since starting this business eighteen years ago, we have greatly increased the breadth and depth of our collection.  While we continue to expand and take on a variety of products outside wedding planning, invitations and promotional events, we always welcome the opportunity to take on custom projects.

We created this custom silk ribbon for our friends at Tiny Pine Press in California who needed to match a fabric color for invitations and wedding day decorations.

We took on a custom matching dilemma for Susan Hammer of Fontastic in Georgia.  Ultimately this order did not go with our hand dyed silk.  We could not match the effect created in this Dupioni silk where threads of different colors are woven together and seem to shift color from different angles.  We were able to provide a ribbon for her wedding programs, just not one we dyed by hand.

A beautiful custom place card for an English bride.   This customer has been working with us for close to a year planning her wedding.  Tomorrow is the big day!  April, 27 2013.  We are very excited for her and all of the couples we have the pleasure of working with.

Custom blended colors in our hand dyed silk ribbons create some of our most unexpected treasures..

Real Card Company sent us 4 different color swatches and asked if we could make a ribbon blending all of the colors together.  Our colorist did a great job matching the swatches and the results turned out beautifully.  We love these type of projects as it’s always fun to see how the new blends are going to turn out.

All of our silk ribbon is dyed in our Seattle studio.  Earth Silk ribbon comes in five different widths and two different finishes.  Our 100% silk which has a matte finish and our 100% silk satin which has a satiny light catching side.  Our ribbon is all bias cut and is available by the spool as well as in cut lengths (depending on the collection).  Of The Earth has created an extensive collection of colors with over 150 to pick from.
