Our Sari Silk Ribbon is created from the remnants of sari silk production in India. The silk remnants are torn into thin strips approximately ½ to 1 inch wide. The thin strips are knotted or sewn together to make a continuous strand of ribbon. The ribbon is then wound into a skein and hand dyed. This ribbon is dyed in small batches, colorways can vary.

The Sari Silk Ribbon industry utilizes home co-operatives to provide a sustainable income for rural Indian communities. The co-operatives ensure that the craftspeople are earning a living wage to meet basic needs and discretionary income.

You can be certain that our Sari Silk Ribbon is an eco-friendly and ethical artisan ribbon. The co-operative we work with is ISO 8000 certified, which is a Social Responsibility Certification. It means child labor is not allowed, no forced or compulsory labor, health and safety of the workers is carefully monitored, no discrimination, and the right to a living wage.

Common uses: tapestry weaving, crochet, knitting, arts and crafts, handwoven home décor, etc…

Care: Handwash, lay flat to dry.

Skein: ~50 yards, 3.5 ounces

Imported from India

*Available by the skein or cake. The difference being that the skein is not ready to be used out of the package. It will either have to be balled or caked up. A cake is all ready to be used! It has a center pull and won’t tangle or roll around while you use it. The cake is also super convenient for storing since they can be stacked.
