This is a unique vintage French grosgrain ribbon! The hand is firm and crisp with a wonderful audible rustle and a nubby textured surface. This two tone ribbon is red and blue; the blue is changeable and captures a lavender hue depending on the light (see photos). This ribbon is 3 1/8" wide.
Moire, or watermark, patterning is one of the oldest treatments to give a textile more surface interest, making this ribbon appropriate for every era from Elizabethan onwards. Consider this as a trimming to a hat, as a sash, or as a breast bow on a dress. Two-tone ribbons are seen in works of art and extant garments from a variety of eras. The sharp texture of this ribbon makes it particularly suitable for 20th century vintage costumes.
This listing is priced by the yard. Please note that all ribbons are sold as-is. Vintage items are inspected before listing, and if flaws are considerable enough to affect their use, they will be noted in the listing and priced accordingly. Otherwise, please understand that light soiling or slight irregularities are not to be considered defects, but part of the patina that gives these vintage items their charm.
