Satin Ribbon is perfect for adding an air of elegance to any ensemble. Satin tends to feature a high luster on one side and a dull look on the other. Satin ribbon was originally made of silk, which meant it was expensive and used primarily by the upper class during the Middle Ages. During that time, it was a major import of the famed Silk Road, as it was produced in Asia and then sent along to Europe. Create stunning necklaces and bind delicate dresses with satin ribbon.
