Metallic Loose weave ribbon

Today lots of studio news! The new line of Loose weave cotton ribbon woven with gold thread is ready and in stock on our shelfs. During last spring, we launched the natural cotton and metallic ribbon, but the result was so lovely that I was immediately inspired to add more. Possibilities now seems endless... For this fall I designed six new colors ribbon, as Red + Gold, Chartreuse + Gold, Fuchsia + Gold, Peacock + Gold, Sage + Gold and Gravel + Gold (my favorite). New also in the studio, tiny pairs of Crane Scissors, packaged by hand in our studio. As my other line of Ribbon Scissors, I found these embroidery scissors in a notions shop in Rome and loved them so much that I tracked down the manufacturer in Italy in order to bring them to you. They have a lovely shape, with golden handles and the sharp blades are the beak of the crane. Love to keep them on hand on my desk! For more wrapping, we added a Red and Gold line cotton ribbon in the 2/8" width. Imagine how cool it can be for styling an Indian wedding too! To celebrate, we are offering free shipping, wholesale, domestic orders, only, for orders placed between today October 8th through the end of the day Monday, October 13th. The Wholesale Catalogue 2014 has been updated with new products and any feedback or questions are always welcome. Let me know what you think, I'm happy to hear from you!

Calligraphy ribbon with Maybelle Imasa Stukuls

I'm very excited the collaboration with calligrapher Maybelle came to life! We were inspired to collaborate together, as soon as we organized the Calligrafia workshop at our studio last spring. Some first drafts of Maybelle alphabet were ready right after the first class, but it took us a few months to complete the project in details. The black ink alphabet, in upper and lower case, became white relief silkscreen printing, over black cotton ribbon. The long time and effort to have the best printing result, was all worth the wait. Now the Calligraphy ribbon arrived from Italy and it is packaged by hand in our studio on tea dye wood spools. They are so beautiful and I'm thankful to Maybelle for working with me on this idea. Now I started to think, what can come next?
