The Wonderful World of Ribbon

Ribbons are an excellent way to introduce colour to a room or an item and Josy Rose has a fantastic range of ribbons suitable for all uses and all are available to order online.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with unexpected combinations of ribbons to create something really special. If you’re stuck for ideas read on and be inspired! Want to give your bedroom a new look? Why not trim plain white bed linen and curtains with blue and gingham ribbon for a fresh seaside or country look. Match them with a set of satin curtain tie backs in a wider width. Then, place a simple bow on the front of the tie back for a decoration.

Why not channel your Scottish roots with the Dress Stewart woven edge tartan ribbon, approved by the Scottish Tartans Authority this ribbon comes in red, green, and white in 5mm to 60mm widths of woven polyester.

The Grosgrain Polyester Collection is available in 6mm to 16mm widths and is ideal for dressing up towels with a grosgrain ribbon on their edge. You can also stitch the 6mm ribbon to patchwork quilts to hide the seam.

The Metallic Collection has 4mm to 60mm widths. They include a lacy fully wired delicate web trim ribbon in a metallic finish. It is great for extravagant wrapping.

The Satin Ribbon Collection comes in 3mm to 50mm widths. The ribbons are single sided and great for trimming fabrics.
