There are a number of reasons to choose a particular type of decorative ribbon trim . Ribbon can be used for crafts, home projects, decoration, scrapbooks, bows, letter ties, bookmarks, and more. Specialty ribbon trims, which can include holiday-appropriate patterns, fun prints, and various textures, can really help add some sparkle to whatever you're working on!
Grosgrain decorative ribbon trim is available in patterns ranging from cheetah print, to American flag trim, to sports-themed ribbon trims and lovely, simple bright colors. Grosgrain ribbon is characterized by its ribbed appearance. It is a plain weave corded fabric, and it features prominent transverse ribs. In terms of clothing, grosgrain ribbon is typically used in hems, where it may or may not be elasticized- though throughout the 17th century it was used as the main fabric used for many garments.
Satin ribbon is one of the most elegant decorative ribbon trim available. Satin ribbon is often used to make decorative flowers, jewelry, headbands, and to embellish costumes and lingerie. Satin ribbon is one of the most popular ribbon trims. It often has a glossy surface and a dull back. Satin ribbons can be made from silk, nylon, or polyester and use a satin weave. This type of decorative ribbon trim tends to have a very high luster. Our satin ribbon choices include several glossy, bright colors as well as bold pattern prints.
Of course, these aren't the only choices we offer. Metallic, Plaid Tartan, Picot, Sheer, Velvet, and Pull a Bow ribbon trims are also available. A variety of Christmas-specific ribbons are also offered so you can wrap your gifts up with a little bit of extra holiday cheer!
Another of the most popular decorative ribbon trims is velvet. Velvet ribbon is a type of woven tufted fabric with evenly-cut and distributed threads. Velvet ribbon has a very distinct feel. Velvet ribbon is often monogramed, used as a matte for photographs, flower arrangements, pillows, and more. There is really nothing like the lush soft texture of velvet!
Pull a Bow ribbons, for their part, are much more structured than the grosgrain ribbon, satin ribbon, and many of the other ribbon trims we offer. Always ready to grace that perfect gift with a unique, added touch, our Pull a Bow ribbons are the perfect addition to that special someone's gift. And, with so many colors from which to choose, you're sure to find what you're looking for!
