Ribbon/Binding

Petersham/Grosgrain & Satin

 Petersham ribbon is a product. Some people call it grossgrain but not all grossgrain/petersham is created equal. If you want a ribbon to bind the edges of your corset be sure it has bumpy edges NOT smooth ones. Petersham ribbon does create a beautiful finish to corset edges. And it is a good option for the waist stay of a corset.

A rayon petersham ribbon, this ribbon has more flexibility than polyester versions commonly found on the market today. This petersham ribbon can be shaped to a curve and will cover the rim of a hat brim with relative ease. Use as foundation for neck ruffs, to face a waist band - great for skirts without an actual waistband, use as the waist stay in a corset and to bind the top and bottom edges of a corset!  The white is dyeable but everyone has varying success with the dye process.

Please NOTE: Our long standing petersham source has closed after decades of producing wonderfull semi-stiff petersham ribbon that we loved. The new source makes a softer petersham ribbon - so if you've bought our petersham ribbon before be aware that it's softer now...than it was prior to 2010.

Our ribbon is true "petersham" ribbon; ribbed with a bumpy selvage.
