This is such a beautiful and unusual ribbon! It's a soft tufted velvet but set in striations like a corduroy. This rayon blend ribbon measures 5/8" in width.
Consider using this for a variety of costume eras from Elizabethan to twentieth century. Perhaps as wide points connecting a 16th century doublet to its sleeves, or as a pendant for an 18th century memento locket, or as part of an evening hair garland of the mid-19th century. Velvet was widely used in almost every era, so the possibilities are endless.
This listing is priced by the yard; orders greater than 5 yards will be shipped in two pieces. 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. In this instance, please bear in mind that velvet ribbons are particularly susceptible to pile crush during storage, transit, and wear. Crushed pile can be revived by the customer using steam and a towel or pin board.
