Divine rich violet purple French ribbon yardage dating to the later Victorian - Edwardian period, Flapper era,  c. 1900 - 1920s.  Found unused in the original package, with fancy period Haute Nouveaute graphics.

This high quality, finely woven and versatile passementerie trim is referred to today in various ways, including ribbon, middy braid, woven tape and/or binding.

The color of this trim is so divine.  The manufacturer's packaging calls the shade
Violet and it is a very rich, dark purple hue, today also referred to as aubergine and/or eggplant.

The texture is exceptionally soft, smooth and silky, with some body and give.  If pulled width wise the ribbon can be spread to over an inch wide and if an end thread is pulled it will also ruche, or gather, so it is very versatile.  Please note that this particular trim is wider than most antique and vintage trims of similar type found today, which most commonly measure a little over one half inch, or thereabouts, while this trim is more than three quarters of an inch wide, with the aforementioned “give”.

A burn test confirmed natural fibers, likely rayon, (possibly with some silk) which imparts a subtle sheen that accents the woven design and rich colorway to perfection.

The ribbon is in exceptionally nice antique estate condition, with rich, vibrant color.  It remains very useable, supple, sound, strong and stable.  The first few yards were a little dusty on the edges exposed outside the paper wrapper, so that was removed and remaining yardage looks very good, with only minor fading to apx. 1-2 mm of the extreme edge of one very small area, (bottom left corner) which will appear intermittently as yardage is un-spooled.

During the period this type of ribbon was used for everything from shoelaces, to corset lacing and clothing trim. Today it can be used for restoring and embellishing the same, as well as millinery, costuming, art ribbon work roses and flowers, French Fashion or Bebe doll dressing, boudoir vanity items, furnishings, pillows, interior design, period restorations and other projects; designers, milliners, dressmakers, corsetry, etc.

NOTE:  Ribbon sold in one yard increments.  Yardage will be cut to order in one continuous length, as possible.  Unless the entire 23 yards is purchased at one time the ribbon will not be sent with the original packaging, (of which outer paper is torn and quite worn) but rather carefully wrapped on a flat ribbon bobbin card.
