Eco Dyed Silk Ribbon


You'll love working with this gorgeous hand-dyed silk ribbon, perfect for weaving, crochet, jewellery making and any fibre based craft projects.

Recycling pure silk saris is a cottage industry run by women in villages around Bangalore, India. Each ball has it's own unique character, with width varying between 15-40mm and various sewn and tied joins. 

Locally, the ribbon is slowly dyed by hand with plants and natural colour sources such as cochineal, prunus, avocado and ivy. Subtle, earthy tones are revealed with irregularities in colour throughout each ball, adding to the charm of their handmade nature.

Balls generally weigh around 50 grams yielding approximately 20 metres of ribbon.

A unique gift or addition to your crafting stash.

Handmade in Castlemaine by Tribe.
