I LOVE these ribbons! These are aged with acid free and lignin free products making this ribbon safe even for your memory albums, scrapbooks, and items were archival quality is necessary. They are aged and have a definite brown feel but there is a slight tint with pinks and an earthy green. Created out of nice and soft 100% cotton fabric. Each has been created by hand and by me. Measures approx 1 1/2 inches wide. Some may slightly vary (within 1/8 - 1/4 inch as they are hand torn).
