Nettle's 2.5cm ribbon is made from bias cut silk satin. Because it's cut diagonally across the width of the fabric, it has a bit of stretch to it as well as a seam about every 3m or so.

Nettle's wider width ribbons are made from crepe de chine, which has a gorgeous low lustre, a lovely drape and a beautifully soft frayed edge and no seams along the length. Colours have a beautiful subtle glow in this fabric, perfect for adding a special, luxurious touch to a bridal bouquet or wedding invitation set.

Night is a beautifully, velvety deep purple colour.

Prices are by the yard. If you would like multiple yards, please choose multiples of the ribbon you're buying. Each number (1,2,3 etc) equals one yard of this width of ribbon.

Our ribbons are hand made by us in Portland from 100% silk and carefully dyed using colours derived from plants and trees. These processes - sometimes taking many days to achieve - lend a beautiful, layered glow to the ribbon.

They are available by the yard and arrive on hand-crafted wooden, custom wooden spools.

Our 2.5" and 4" ribbons are made from crepe de chine, which has a gorgeous low lustre, a lovely drape and a beautifully soft frayed edge. We love the subtle glow that our colours have in this fabric! 

Our 1" ribbon is made from bias cut silk habutai. Because it's cut diagonally across the width of the fabric, it has a bit of stretch to it as well as a seam about every 3 yards or so.

It should be noted that while we adhere to a formula for each colour, since these are hand made textiles, some variation between batches will occur. It should also be noted that some variation along the length of the ribbon may occur, due to the nature of the dyes - this is part of what makes plant dyed ribbons unique and special!

We source the fabrics from which we make our ribbon from suppliers who are deeply committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, as we are. It's important to us at Nettle that we leave the world more beautiful and better for us than it would have been without us ♡
