Our seamless hand dyed ribbons are often blends of many pigments, resulting in a complex yet subtle interplay of nuances. Every step of our ribbon process is by hand, from dyeing, to tearing into ribbon widths, fraying and then pressing. Our hand frayed ribbon ensures the softest edge possible. Our Ribbons are pressed and rolled onto spools, except our styling mix bundles and crinkle silk ribbon.

PRODUCT CARE INFO

Pressing Ribbons

When your ribbons first arrive they will either be on spools or folded. All our ribbons are on spools except our crinkle silks and our bundles. If your ribbon is on a spool, they are already pressed. However if you need to freshen them up, pull  through hair straighteners on a high setting or under the base of the hotplate of a fairly hot iron. Work in one direction only (the direction the frayed edge is sitting. Holding one end in one hand, the iron in the other. Our crinkle ribbons come hand rolled and unpressed, to allow their full textured appearance to be used. If you wish to press them to have a soft crinkle, just iron normally with a fairly hot iron or hair straightener. 

After Use Care

Yes! All of our colors are set and will not run. Our ribbons should be washed by hand in a pH neutral soap (silk does not like alkali environments) and carefully rinsed a number of times. 
Chiffon is very fragile and is probably best rolled flat on the hand first to make a bundle then gently lowered into the water and just move up and down.Line dry until just damp and then press them. 
 For our original ribbons you can pull them slowly under a hot iron. If this silk dries too much the creases will not iron out. Spray with water until damp and press. Or you can make a lovely textured ribbon by deliberately letting it dry scrunched up. 
 Washed crinkles can be left to dry and they will stay crinkly, or pressed flatter when partly dry. 
 The gauze ribbons are best pressed when damp so either catch when partly dry or spray. Again use a fairly hot iron. 
 The chiffon ribbon is very delicate and best pressed when dry. Lay it partly on the board, spray, then iron that piece gently (it can stretch). do it section at a time.
