Today, to celebrate my 30 years in business I am offering part of my Antique Ribbon Collection for sale.  Ribbon lovers like you will value and appreciate this rare opportunity.

Rare & Limited French Ribbon Collection

When I started my ribbon business 30 years ago my very first and favorite collection was the gorgeous woven Jacquard ribbons from the very best French Mill Julien Faure in Saint Etienne area in France, near Lyon

Visit regularly as we keep 30 ribbons at all time, until the whole collection will be sold out!

 

Many of them are one of a life time, never to be seen again because nobody does this kind of handwork nowadays- like this gorgeous hand cut velvet ribbon

The jacquard process, which originated in France in the early 19th century perfected the weaving of an almost infinite variety of textures colors and intricate patterns on a minute scale. 

Before the invention of the jacquard loom woven patterned fabric was made by hand, being very labor intensive and expensive, using a system of punch cards linked together in a continuous belt not unlike the early computers the jacquard loom mechanized the production of patterned textiles and their manufacture was begun on an industrial scale.

Jacquard weaving captured the essence of the glittering elegance of the French courts and wove it into a tangible form; Ribbons were the epitome of refinement, and they were incorporated in fabric, furnishings and fashion.

Our archive of woven ribbons reveals a multitude of subtle effects, from wide dense and robust gold weaves to delicate shimmering lacy and diaphanous.

Our collection of Jacquard woven ribbons presents a unique opportunity unlikely to ever be repeated, we will begin our offering to our dedicated ribbon lovers with a selection of 30 ribbons. Many of them are one of a life time, never to be seen again because nobody does this kind of handwork nowadays

You do not need to do anything with these ribbons, they are works of art in themselves, to be looked at, collected, or used as bookmarks or ornaments.
