Welcome to the new home of Heirloom Silk. We (Anne & Lydia) have taken over the reins from Paula Baxter at Millpond Flower Farm, who began making these silk ribbons in 2014. She has spent that time experimenting and developing the beautiful, soft colours you see here today.
All the ribbons are named after interesting women from history (Paula finally got to put to use many hours of research spent in dusty libraries reading about these amazing ladies), so we are able to avoid those overused and rather uninspiring names 'hint of...' , 'whisper of... ' that colours are often assigned. After all, the colours produced through this natural dyeing process have such personalty.
Using only the best quality of silks, with all-natural plant dyes these ribbons are the perfect accessory for adding luxury and romance.
