50mm Wide No.16 Vintage 1950's England/Swiss Made Nylon Ribbon

Nylon ribbon has a slightly stiff hand and a subtle sheer appearance making it ideal for making lush bows, folding into intricate swirls, dressmaking, and even for luxurious gift wrapping! Dating to the 1950's, it really is an all-round winner! 

Made in England (or Switzerland, depending on colour), we rescued these from an old haberdashery and they are in insanely perfect condition for their age!

Ribbon measures 50mm (1.9 inches) wide and is sold by the metre (1.09 yards). Alternatively we are offering this ribbon up by the whole roll which measures approx. 16m (18 yards) for a massive savings on the per metre price. 

Multiple metres purchased will arrive as one long continuous piece. Some colours vary ever so slightly in width by 1-2mm.

Where possible we will provide the paper backing for your ribbon. We have a massive selection of vintage nylon ribbons, so same-name colours across sizes may vary in tone. If you need a perfect match please do get in touch!
