I love a ribbon. It doesn't matter whether it is trailing, tied or simply wound round a gathered bouquet. A carefully chosen ribbon can enhance any bouquet or buttonhole.
I have a range of favourite suppliers that I use. For ribbons embellished with tiny pearls or sequins I go to the queen of ribbon shops, VV Rouleaux in London. Two floors of the most beautiful braids, ribbons and feathers. I could spend hours (and a lot of money) in there. Definitely worth a visit if you are near Marylebone.
Over the past year I have been using more and more trailing silk ribbons in my work. I work with a local textile artist who has dyed me some gorgeous dusky pink and peach silk ribbons. I also use Pom Pom Blossom who hand dyes all her beautiful silk ribbons.
