Berisfords grosgrain ribbon is a high quality tightly woven ribbon with a texture of fine lines or cord across it. Grosgrain is a very stylish ribbon - sometimes called 'preppy' or 'trendy' ribbon. Grosgrain ribbons are ideal for paper crafting and the ribbon almost has a 'paper-like' quality about it.
Grosgrain ribbons are fabulous on wedding invitations and all types of wedding stationery including favour boxes and wedding day stationery. The tight weave makes grosgrain ribbon really 'firm' so it holds it's shape well - hand-tied bows look 'well formed' and neat, so it's particularly suited to those looking for style and uniformity in their wedding invitation design.
Adding a rhinestone buckle or ribbon slide to a grosgrain ribbon makes a very stylish wedding invitation. Grosgrain ribbon is also a popular ribbon for scrapbooking, sewing and other crafts.
We've chosen to stock the top quality grosgrain ribbon from Berisfords Ribbons. You can see from our collection that we have lovely colours of plain grosgrain and then a super collection of grosgrain ribbons with text. Grosgrain is a very strong ribbon often used in uniforms, as detail on clothing and accessories and straps generally. The grosgrain with text is fabulous for cards and gifts and the plain is ideal for stationery with widths as narrow as 6mm. Dior bows would work really well and be so smart but, with grosgrain ribbon, it's less easy to tie a 'relaxed', 'blousy' bow. For that, you might be better choosing satin or organza.
