Purple // LILAC WHISPER / Tabby Silk
Seriously divine colour in our sheer tabby silk ribbon. Soft Lilac and grey undertones.
This is a beautifully delicate, soft and sheer silk - lighter in weight than our habotai silk and the edges fray more easily. This finer silk is my fav for wrapping around stationery and gift boxes and is the perfect companion to the Habotai silk, for bouquets.

All our silk ribbons are hand dyed using natural and local plant materials. Each spool holds 3 or 5 metres of bias cut silk ribbon. 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.
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!
