Vintage Rayon Tape dyed at this studio this week!
Purchase our rayon tape at www.ribbonsmyth.com or on our Etsy sites.
Dyeing any fiber is relaxing and quite the gamble. I dye fibers and fabrics intuitively and do keep formulas, but repeating the same dyelot is impossible. (It is difficult to dye pastel shades, because I prefer strong, rich colors.) Maybe that is why I appreciate hand-dyed fibers. I know they are exclusive and elusive to "the moment". I sell many yards of rayon tape to jewelry designers and artists. It would be fabulous to see a collection of their pieces.
All our dyed fibers are air-dried outdoors which means 98% of my dyeing is done in the summer. We had a day of warm weather last week and all these vintage ribbons spent their day drying under the sun. Can't wait for spring.
