Taffeta ribbon for hair bows
Crisp, smooth and shiny taffeta ribbon is often wired so it will hold it's shape.
This high end fabric ribbon makes excellent hair bows.
Because of it's shiny nature and how it is often tipped in gold or other metallic it is especially useful in holiday hair bows, wedding bows or any other special occasion boutique bow.
Usually Taffeta ribbon comes in solid colors the exception being gingham plaids. On occasion you'll find a specialty pattern and these are highly prized because the patters are woven into the ribbon when it's made not stamped on afterwards.
So, this means that taffeta is always the same on the front and the backside of the ribbon. A good thing to know when designing your unique hair bows.
