1 yd of Shibori Ribbon in Deep Sea Mermaid 4" wide pleated to around 1" wide silk satin bias cut ribbon.
Stunning hand dyed Shibori Ribbon from Shibori Girl Studio, Glennis Dolce. Shibori is a Japanese term for several methods of dyeing cloth with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, or compressing it.
This technique is applied to 4” bias cut 100% silk satin ribbon, which is carefully pole wrapped and dyed and over-dyed multiple times to create stunning, vibrant color variations between the pleats and throughout the ribbon resulting a three dimensional work of art!
Both the color and texture is steam set rendering the color washfast and lightfast and the pleating semi-permanent. You may wish to alter the texture with a light shot of steam from your iron or remove it completely by ironing flat on a silk steam setting to reveal the lovely shibori dye pattern.
Bias cut ribbon is made using fabric and is cut in strips at a 45 degree angle to the woven edge. The strips are joined to form a continuous "ribbon". So your continuance piece MAY or WILL have a seam somewhere in its length. This cannot be avoided. The edge are raw but since cut the the 45 degree angle to not unravel but will FRAY. Sadly my only negative feedback on my store was from a customer that did not understand this. Please contact me if you need further explanation.
