Finely Woven Vintage Cotton Ribbon Braid Sewing Trim Yardage ~ Choice Colors, Red OR White

Really nice very finely woven vintage cotton ribbon braid type sewing trim, available in choice of two colors: a soft creamy white, or apple red, as per the color name stamped on rend of ed ribbon spool.  No fiber content noted on either roll, but both trims feel and look like cotton, possibly with some rayon.  Also, a burn test confirms all natural yarns; the trim ignites fairly easily with direct flame, but sputters and burns slowly, smells of burning paper/wood and leaves minimal fine ash, all strong indications of pure natural cotton and/or rayon. Offered  by the yard, with substantial yardage available for each color.

The trim is narrow, with a soft, silky feel and subtle sheen.  It is very finely woven middy type braid, so there is a slight texture, however the trim is not thick and bulky, but rather quite slim, smooth and pliable with a delicate appearance and aesthetic, yet due to the cotton fibers the ribbon is very sturdy.  Perfect for dainty or fine applications, like ribbon work, doll and teddy bear dressing, and probably some types of needlework like knitting, crochet and more.

Found on the original old cardboard and metal reinforced spools.  Both trims appear to have been stored well, as we see no signs of fading, dust or deterioration often seen on older vintage trims of this sort.  Although we cannot see deep inside the many layers of trim on the rolls / bolts, they appear to remain in excellent vintage estate condition; very strong and stable.  Color is consistent, however on the white spool we did note a very small area that appears to have a pale diffused pinkish hint, which is likely a bit of surface color transfer and probably not detectable once trim is removed from the roll.  Purchased yardage will be sent in one continuous length as possible, however occasionally we have found several different lengths on large bolts like this, and/or factory splices.   When this occurs we always include extra yardage to allow for seaming.

Please see our other listing in this category for similar embellishments and sewing trims.

Regarding Shipping & Checkout: we can offer only 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 mail price quote, rather than using our standard checkout as described below, please email us via the Contact tab on menu bar at page top;  please include the item description, quantity and destination.  We will gladly reply with a cost for USPS First Class mail, at which time a custom Paypal Invoice can be forwarded to facilitate payment, if desired.

ORDERING DETAILS:  Please scroll down the page and select the ribbon trim color of your choice below.  Next, if you wish to purchase more than one yard, which is the minimum purchase, please type the desired number of yards from 2 up to the maximum for each color choice in the white QUANTITY Box and then click the ADD TO CART Button. The appropriate total for your selected amount of yardage will be calculated and shown on the resulting Invoice. If you wish to order more than one color simply return to this page and complete the process again for your next color.  When finished, proceed with checkout.
