This is a gorgeous vintage bright orange ribbon! It is double sided satin, smooth and soft to the touch, with a firm hand. The color is "coquelicot," a cheerful orange with a red tint, named for the poppy flower. The color is gorgeously saturated and it reflects the light beautifully. This ribbon is vintage French rayon and measures 2 3/8" wide.
Satin ribbons were prevalent from the Elizabethan era onward. This would make a lovely sash or hat decoration for a variety of periods.

Stunning quality, beautiful vintage ribbon. Shipping was super fast too - love it!
