This is silk ribbon made from china silk that has been hand dyed with hibiscus and red cabbage. I used soy milk as a mordant.
It is approximately 2 inches wide by 54 inches (2 yards) long.
The colour is a light grey pink, almost mauve, with tones of blue and green, best shown on the white background. The colour is not solid but slightly varied throughout the piece.
The edges are raw. I have tried to pull off the excess threads but some might work out.
The ribbon has been machine washed cold twice and air dried. I use these on my own clothes, therefore machine washable is a must. However, if bleach is added, the colour will not stay true. I find this colour also softens after many washings (20 plus).
Everything I use to make these ribbons I can I compost and put back in the earth. There is nothing toxic in the dying process.
If you need something similar, I have more fabric that is not torn. I can easily very widths but cannot go any longer then 54 inches. Also, if you wish a custom order, it will take me about three weeks to make it.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
