Period ribbon yardage dating to the later Victorian - Edwardian era, c. 1870 - 1910s.  Found in France unused in the original packages with fancy period graphics, indicating it was originally sold as boot and shoe lacing.

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

The texture is exceptionally soft, smooth and silky, with some body and give.  If pulled width wise the ribbon can be spread to apx. 3/4 of an inch wide and while we have not tried it with this particular trim, usually if an end thread is pulled it will also ruche, or gather, so it is quite versatile.  Also, the ends can be fringed or tasseled, as was customary for shoe and boot laces of the period.  (see last image; easy to make longer fringe, if desired)

A burn test confirmed natural fibers, likely rayon, (possibly with some silk) which imparts a pleasing subtle sheen.

The ribbon is in exceptionally nice antique estate condition.  It remains very useable, supple, sound, strong and stable.  The color is black, but a softer hue, not quite as dark as shown in the last close-up image.

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 46 yards is purchased at one time the ribbon will not be sent with the original packaging, (of which outer papers are torn and quite worn) but rather carefully wrapped on a flat ribbon bobbin card.

Regarding Shipping & Checkout: we can only reflect USPS Priority Shipping Rates through our Cart/Check-out system, however if you wish to make a purchase totaling LESS than $50.00, and the item(s) is small/light weight, like buttons, ribbon, paper, etc., it is possible USPS First Class mail might be slightly less expensive. If you would like a First Class quote, rather than using our standard checkout as described below, please email us via the Contact tab on menu at page top, including the item description, quantity and destination and we will gladly supply a cost for USPS First Class mail, at which time a custom Paypal Invoice can be forwarded upon request.
