The origins of ribbon date back to the 11th century in St. Etienne, the capital city of the Loire Valley region in Northwest France. Ribbons were once made by hand in complicated configurations. Specifically, the Loire is the birthplace of jacquards, which are ribbons featuring elaborate woven designs. The hand made nature of these materials made them extremely costly to manufacture. Early ribbon artisans later exported their handicrafts to Germany and England. Today, ribbon manufacturing still takes place in Krefeld in Germany, as well as in Coventry in England. Historically, the use of ribbon was primarily for garments and undergarments. Today, however, ribbon is primarily machine-made, and used in a wide variety of decorative and functional applications.
Many of our clients have used double faced satin ribbon with beautiful hang tags. The possibilities for your luxury product are endless. Contact us today for more information about our new double faced satin ribbon, or to request a sample.
