wide antique & vintage silk ribbons

Gold Rayon Tinsel Ribbon

Stunning 4" Wide Gold Rayon Tinsel Ribbon

This beautiful, heavy ribbon is made of rayon / tinsel, and is a luminous, shimmering gold of substantial weight. Made in the USA quite a long time ago....

We have 10 yards available, at $7.50/ yard.

Wide Black Silk - Antique Ribbon

Wide Black Silk Ribbon

This black silk ribbon measures a big 2 7/8" inches wide. The edges are stitched in brown. It's still on the paper spool, which proclaims that it has a "warranted fast edge" and is "all silk."

Spool shows contact with moisture at some point, but I have inspected the ribbon thoroughly and there's no damage to it. It is rather sheer, and in in beautiful condition.

Wide Mauve Ribbon

This beautiful ribbon is a pinky mauve, and measures 4 3/16" inch in width. It is very lustrous, and soft. The front is silky smooth, while the back is ribbed. Probably rayon.

Still on its original paper-lined spool, there are 1 yard, and 15 inches here (plus, about 6 inches on one end which shows some wear. ) A lovely ribbon for your special project.
