Silk Ribbons

Di van Niekerk, author of ten embroidery books, has her own dazzling range of hand painted pure silk taffeta and organza ribbons to suit every occasion.  There are 132 beautiful, natural colours to choose from.

The Silk and Organza ribbons are variegated and designed for authentic, life-like flowers and leaves. They are colourfast and washable. As her ribbons are all hand painted and not dyed, the colour is stronger along the edge of the ribbon. This is what results in such a natural finish.

The different shades blend beautifully, allowing the colours to merge with one another so that your completed embroidery looks so real, you will be delighted with the results! There are 11 different widths to choose from.
