Hessian Ribbon Is Back !

Over the last year we have seen a large number of Hessian ribbons coming on to the market place with a heavy en-faces on the plain fabric look in natural. 

This has been extremely popular and we have seen it used for a wide range of applications from Wedding Favours, Cake Decoration and Floral arrangements through to volume packaging. This ribbon has proved to be very versatile and this together with the vintage look has we feel been it's appeal.

Last year saw a lot of plain finishes on this fabric and during the spring we introduced a number of colour options for ribbon to run along side the natural look, these included a red and tan as well as green and brown shades. Since then we have seen a large number of colour options appear with some fab bright colours such as shocking pink making an appearance.

All of the ribbons that we offer in the Hessian fabric feature a wired edge which means that the ribbon benefits from being able to retain its form more easily when bowed, twisted or tied and it's this feature that helps a thicker fabric such as the Hessian lend it's self well for wedding, packaging and florist projects.

Hessian Ribbon With Lace

A twist on the Plain look has been the introduction of a lace overlay and or a lace edging, which works really well as a textural contrast with the hessian, we have found that this has been popular in the wider widths these being the 38mm and 50mm versions although this ribbon does go down to a narrower version in a 25mm width. The look has been ideal for wedding work. Below we have featured a couple of images of this style of ribbon that has been popular for us over recent month. These are just examples of two however there are a wide variety of designs out in the market place.

New For 2017

This month we have introduced a variation on a theme with these wonderful coloured hessian ribbons with contrasting coloured spots. This is woven in a 38mm width  and has a lightly wired edge. I must say that the Brown and Green versions are our favourite colour ways and we feel that the muted tones work well with this style of fabric weave..

It will be interesting to see what the coming months have to hold for Hessian and what new products enter the market place. If you would like to share any images of projects where you have used this fabric them we would love to see them.
