plant dyed habotai silk headband or clip :: grey
this is a stunning pearly grey which can look quite silvery depending on the light and your surroundings.
habotai silk ribbon hand tied into a classic shaped bow featuring a raw edge.
bows are attached to your choice of a soft stretchable one size fits all white nylon headbead or alligator clip with teeth.
bow measures approximately 2.5" x 2”. size is approximate due to the hand cut nature of each ribbon.
the ribbon colours are created from sustainably sourced and harvested plant dyes. plant dyes are more subtle and complex than those created by synthetic dyes. you are purchasing a "living colour" that is unique, one of a kind and comes most alive in natural sunlight .
silk has a natural prism like structure which refracts incoming light at different angles. this is what gives silk ribbon it’s iridescent appearance. plant dyes also have a similar reaction to light, they create a living colour that changes and adapts to it’s surrounding. plant dyes create complex colours that contain a variety of pigments. for this reason, colours may appear to change depending on the lighting. although no photograph can compare to the actual product in person, great care has gone into photographing in natural light for colour accuracy.
while each ribbon is dyed in the same manner, with the same plant materials, slight variations & unique characteristics will make each bow special.
ribbons are dyed in small batches, some colours taking days to reach their full potential. you are purchasing a slow crafted one of a kind piece of art.
bias cut ribbon is created by cutting rolls of woven silk on a 45 degree angle. the "bias-cut" is a technique used by designers to create a soft drape. being cut on the bias means that there will be a seam in the ribbon approximately every two yards. some bows may have this seam, adding to the uniqueness of each bow.
