Taffeta Ribbon is ideal for detailing ballgowns or touching up blouses. Taffeta is typically made of silk or synthetics, and is considered a high-end fabric. It is very thin, and features a crisp hand. Originally from Italy and France, modern taffeta was created during the eighteenth century and is sometimes referred to as "pompadour taffeta." Today, most silk taffetas are produced in Southeast Asia. Use taffeta ribbon to add an elegance to structured garments and elegant ensembles.
