BLUE SLATE Habotai
Blue slate - this iridescent shade shifts from grey and blue grey.
TABBY and HABOTAI SILK:
Both from the finest Mulburry silk, Tabby is lighter in weight, more delicate and sheer, whilst Habotai is a little heavier and thicker. Both are very beautiful!
All our silk ribbons are hand dyed using natural and local plant materials. Bias cut is ribbon or "tape" that has been produced by cutting directly from bolts of fabric diagonally along the bias. The result is a beautiful and flexible ribbon that drapes and stretches nicely making it the perfect wedding accessory for bouquets, stationery, cutlery, chairs etc. Bias silk ribbon has a seam every 1 or so metres, as this is how it is constructed. The edges are unfinished, but will not unravel. You can however create a soft frayed look by running your fingers very slightly on the edges.
Because these are dyed using plant matter, there may be unique random markings on the fabric. This is the nature of nature! When making up the colors, we use the same measurements, however variations will occur depending on the variety of our materials. You really are purchasing a one of a kind, truly special ribbon with so much love (and time) put into each batch.
All our ribbons are photographed in natural light however the colour may not be exactly what you see on your screen (we try our very best to match the true colour). There is also subtle colour changes with each ribbon depending on the light - which makes them even more stunning!
