ODDS SALE! — 50% off, already discounted.
COLOR — Ethereal Pink (2.25" wide x 4.5 yards long), a very light shade of pink, hand dyed in my studio with plant dyes. These are plant dyed silk ribbons that have a few plant dye spots and I am selling them as odds. They can still be used for styling, or gift wrapping. It comes on a wooden spool.
ONE OF A KIND — You are buying a "living color" that may appear to change depending on the lighting. Each ribbon is one of a kind and may have nuances, marbling, speckles from the natural dyeing process. Plant dyeing embraces imperfection.
WHO IS THIS SILK RIBBON FOR? — This silk ribbon was hand dyed with the fine art bride in mind. A bride who appreciates the art of natural dyeing and is not looking to match her wedding colors exactly. Also, a bride who loves natural textures and looks for meaningful details to adorn her wedding.
PROCESS — Every step is slowly crafted by hand in my studio: from hand dyeing silk in a pot using plant dyes from flowers, roots, foliage, nuts, fruits, and woods; sourced from fair trade companies or locally foraged, to tearing it organically into ribbons embracing imperfection, lightly pressing for a natural texture, and rolling onto handmade wooden spools.
100% SILK — habutai, beautiful sheen.
EDGES — Hand torn for an organic look, if a thread is loose along the length of the ribbon, it can easily be cut.

Most calligraphers and wedding invitation designers use 1 yard to adorn each invitation.
My plant dyed colors may vary from batch to batch, for this reason I do not offer samples. Even if the color doesn't match precisely, they always look beautiful and add another layer of thoughtfulness to wedding invitations, programs, and bridal bouquets.
At the moment, I am not offering custom colors. I hand dye limited edition colors.
