Alice Thornton - habotai silk ribbon

from 4.50

Alice Thornton* is fire and flame. Bright orange it gathers light and throws it around, a real zinger! The current batch of Alice Thornton has a subtle mottled/marbled finish.

  • We hand-dye and hand-cut these pure silk ribbons in our Somerset workshop

  • Made from the finest habotai silk, to give a soft, flowing look, with a slight shimmery effect.

  • All botanical dyes are handmade by us using plants we have sourced from the local area, reusing and recycling flowers and garden waste

  • These ribbons are cut on the bias, so drape beautifully

  • They are approximately 1.5m in length, which is a perfect length for tying on a bouquet, but if you require longer lengths you can easily stitch a few reels together

  • Available in 3 widths - 2cm, 5cm, 8cm

  • Supplied on handmade wooden peg, wrapped in tissue, and packaged in a box for protection

  • Perfect for adding a luxurious and romantic feel to your wedding or event

  • If the size/colour/quantity you are looking for is out of stock, drop us an email as we can usually make to order fairly quickly.
