Metallic Ribbon is quite versatile and can add a futuristic or exotic element to a project. Metallic is a specific shine that occurs on a polished metal. Since it isn't a color, a metallic shine cannot be recreated with a single color. Originally, actual metals like gold and silver were woven into fabrics. Now, threads are dyed or made with synthetics to recreate the metallic sheen. Create eye-catching hemlines and bows with metallic ribbon.
