We love the wide range of uses Cotton Ribbon has – it is so versatile! We chose to go with a natural finish on our Cotton Ribbon with soft frayed edges which pairs beautifully with almost any theme or style. From Bohemian to Romantic; Elegant to Vintage; and Rustic to Whimsical!
But before we dive into all of the many ways you can use Cotton Ribbon, lets explore more about the source of this perfect finishing touch – the Cotton.
Cotton has been around for a VERY long time; the first evidence of it’s use dating back to about 6,000 B.C. (wow!)
It is cultivated around the world, but despite the geographic differences, cotton is prepared, spun and woven the same way everywhere amongst cotton farmers.
Cotton is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it a great choice as an environmentally-friendly fibre.
All of the cotton plant is used, there is no waste. The fibre is the primary reason for growing cotton; but the seeds are used for animal feed and human use as well in cottonseed oil. The plant stalks are then tilled back into the soil after harvesting.
