SILK RIBBON VS. CHIFFON RIBBON

SILK - soft, delicate, and more fragile than chiffon. CHIFFON - durable and soft, with a nice drape. All of our ribbon is made from a chiffon fabric, hand torn and hand processed. Similar to silk, chiffon is a beautiful alternative to silk, with the same softness and drape as silk ribbon or silk fabric. If bouquet stems touch the chiffon ribbon, it bounces back and doesn’t stain like silk ribbon does - making it a perfect choice for wedding bouquet ribbon. Any stains can be easily washed out. 


What width and length ribbon do you suggest for a bridal bouquet?

To take the guess work out of for bridal bouquets, we created the bouquet bundles, which offer a pack of ribbons that are perfect for a bridal bouquet . If you prefer to order individual spools. We suggest two spools in 2in or 2.5 in width for each bridal bouquet, and one spool of either 2in or 1.5in for each maid’s bouquet. 


Do you offer colors samples?

As our selection of colors changes often, we do not offer a color samples at this time. 


Are colors accurate with what I see on the website?

Although no photograph can compare to the actual product in person, great care has gone into photographing in natural light for color accuracy and we tried our very best to match the colors you see to the actual ribbon color, but with the nature of computer screens, the colors may vary slightly.
