Re: [BKARTS] Shopping for Silk Grosgrain Ribbon?



Tinsel Trading Co in Manhattan might be able to mail order they are an old time garment industry source.

Does anyone know a source for 7mm or 1/4 inch wide real silk grosgrain ribbon? I'm looking for something to match the ribbed ribbon used for sewing tapes and ties on late 19th century Arts and Crafts limp vellum bindiings. Extensive searching turns up only a light weight silk ribbon, nothing like a true grosgrain. I'm at the point of considering weaving my own but really will prefer not to. My very many thanks for any suggestions.
