Treasured antique haute couture 19 Century french jacquard large silk ribbon in sumptious ivory jacquard weave with real silver thread embroidery from my familys ribbon archives.

This piece, in excellent condition is a luxury textile collectors dream but it has been stored very carefully for at least 120 years and is in good enough condition to be used for sewing projects as it is intact and would make an incredible addition to bridal couture projects

This trim is unused and was created by my familys company, Les Faures Freres in St. Etienne, the world home of ribbon making, in late 19th Century

This ribbon measures 20.5cm in length with a width of 25cm. Please note there are currently no passementiers out there who can create this type of ribbon anymore as the machines no longer exist (and sadly the skills have also been lost). The maximum width that they make now is 10cm.
