BLUE / Pale Indigo // Habotai
Small batch of pale indigo silk ribbon only available in our habotai silk. Just a bit darker than our smokey blue.
TABBY, HABOTAI, CREPE or GEORGETTE:
Tabby silk is a beautifully delicate, soft and sheer silk - lighter in weight than the habotai silk and the edges fray more easily. Habotai has a smooth finish while Georgette and Crepe are textured silk. Georgette has a soft crinkly surface while crepe has more of a crimped effect.
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.
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!
