Tartan ribbon has always been a popular choice among customer for a very wide range of uses including but not limited to Weddings, Christmas, Gift Ware, Funerals and Crafting to mention just a few.
In a ribbon format there are only a few manufacturers in the UK that we know of that weave these ribbons, some are small bespoke weavers others large companies such as Berisfords Ribbons in Congleton Cheshire. To insure consistency of product we tend to use Tartan Ribbon made by Berisfords Ribbons, the reason that we use them is that we know that they are approved by the Tartan Authority and manufacturer there range of 17 tartans under licence. UK manufacturing means that supply tends to be very consistence with very short out of stock times if at all.
There is a lot of variety of product on the market place at the moment of different qualities, we have even seen a number of popular designs that have been reproduced by printing rather then woven, these means that the ribbon can be left with a white margin and edge to it where the print ends. Therefor be careful when looking at cheap ribbon product.
