Love-in-a-mist is a dusty blue colour. This hue is produced by dipping the fabric several times in an organic indigo vat.
Our current batch looks more “dusty” than the first few batches.
In naturally dyed product, nature gives us living colours, over time the colour might shift or fade. It is recommended to approach this phenomena by embracing the beauty in each of their life phases. Storing in the dark place or out of bright light will help the colour shift happens in a slower pace.
Our ribbon is made of 100% silk fabric, handdyed using natural materials from plants. The ribbon is seamless and is wound on a vintage style wooden spool made of sustainable mango wood. (Ribbons with length less than 2 yards will not come with a wooden spool and will be wound on handmade paper).
Due to the handmade nature of our product, some flecks or imperfections might occur both in the fabric weave and the dyeing result. Some ribbons may have random little markings which add to the character of this artpiece.
It should be noted that while we adhere to a certain recipe in our dyeing practice, some shift in the colour shade between batches is inevitable. Read more about natural dyeing and our process here.
Please note that order processing time for this month is 3-6 business days.
CARING FOR YOUR SILK RIBBON
When you are using your ribbon to tie a flower bouquet, please make sure that the stem is dry. Wet stem may impart colours onto the ribbon and the stain might be difficult to remove. Also take care that the ribbon doesn't get in touch with water containing flower food, as it is a chemical which can stain the ribbon and shift natural colours.
Floral green tape may impart colour to the silk ribbon. If you use green tape, it is advisable to cover it with twine or scotch tape to prevent colour transfer to the ribbon.
It is not advisable to wash the ribbon because some colours might be affected by the acidity or alkalinity of the soap and water used. Should you need to wash your ribbon, we recommend to gently handwash it in tepid water using a gentle pH-neutral soap and air dry out of direct sunlight. Natural colours may shift in shades when encountering drastic change in pH or added chemical.
You can iron your ribbon using dry iron on the silk (low - medium) setting.
Do note that fading is a known characteristic of natural colours. As such, please store your ribbon in dark place, out of bright light and direct sunlight to prevent rapid fading.
