Natural Dyed Silk Ribbon
You'll love working with this gorgeous hand-dyed silk ribbon. Explore the possibilities for weaving, crochet, jewellery making, textile art, gift wrap, home decor and fibre based craft projects.
Recycling silk wedding saris is a cottage industry run by women in villages around Bangalore, India. Each ball has it's own unique character, with a mix of fabric textures in varying widths with irregular sewn and knotted joins.
Locally, the ribbon is slowly dyed by hand with plants and natural colour sources such as prunus and avocado. Subtle, earthy tones are revealed with variations in colour throughout each ball, adding to the charm of their handmade nature.
Please choose individual balls, each weighing 200grams.
A unique gift or addition to your crafting stash.
Silk ribbon fair trade sourced from India, hand-dyed in Castlemaine by Elfin Trail.
