Review: *****"absolutely love this ribbon; the wider widths are hard to find!"***** M. P.
Gorgeous pastry rolls of the most colorful Sari silks you've ever seen! Each of these rolls is absolutely unique. If you prefer one with more of one color or lighter/darker shades overall, let me know your preference and I will send the closest I have to it. As can be seen in the various photos, these seem to be comprised of mostly bright and/or jewel tones, with some earthy, bright and pastel colors in there too, but not as much. Because of the length of each color (about a yard each on average), small portions such as 5 or 10 yards will not have as much color variety as the full rol. There may even be some repetitions in color shades.
Sari Silk Ribbon is made in India by women working through Fair Trade. They take what would otherwise be silk waste, from cutting sari silk for wraps and clothing, and sew the pieces end to end, occasionally in a fancy pattern, to make beautiful continuous wide ribbon trails. In these yummy little rolls there are greens (both brights and earthy), reds (brights and earthy), Purples, Teals, and Golds, as well as a few light patterns. Some of these ribbons measure as much as 2 1/2" to 3+ inches across, with a few having lacy, fringed, or frayed edges for uniqueness. Color repeat is approximately a yard, but varies when smaller lengths are sewn in. There are anywhere from 10 - 15 colors within each roll. Use them phat or strip them into thinner ribbon. Have you seen the fabulous hats made with this phat ribbon woven in through crocheted or loosely knitted hats! Cover lampshades with the BOHO sari look for one of a kind room enhancements. Embellish scrapbooks, book covers, scarves, art yarn, luggage or purse straps, even jewelry. Great in weaving, rug making, or plying into your OOAK yarns. If you prefer bolder, earthier, more floral colors, or any other preference such as more golds, reds, etc..., just include a note in the "instructions to merchant" section of your order. With the ribbon being so wide, there is a lot of silk material to a yard, much more than the thinner ribbon colors.
See the pictures from Pinterest for great ideas. There are so many more things you can do with this hot new crafting material!
Choose 5 yards, 10 yards or 25 - 35 yards. Choose from drop-down box at upper right. Please note that if you order the smaller lengths of 5 or 10 yards, there may be repetitive colors in your ribbon, which may lessen the number of individual colors you get. For orders of the entire roll, I can get closer to a group of colors you're looking for.
