Silk ribbon colour fastness

Please note that Little Trimmings do not guarantee the colour fastness of the silk ribbon we supply.
A note from the manufacturer reminds us that silk is a very delicate fibre and needs to be treated gently and with great respect.
During the dying process silk can not be subject to the same chemicals which guarantee colour fastness in synthetic fibres.
It is the customers’ responsibility to test for suitability of these ribbons for their particular project. Silk ribbons are not recommended for use on projects which stand a chance of getting wet. It should be pointed out that dark colours especially should not be used on a light background if there is a chance of the article getting damp or wet as the colours may ‘bleed’, black, browns and reds are particularly bad. Any ‘wet’ should be dried immediately to reduce colour run or bleeding.
Silk ribbon colours are also likely to fade in sun light, so should be kept out of direct sunlight and stored out of daylight, preferably wrapped in acid free tissue.


This advice is given freely and without prejudice.
Little Trimmings can not be held responsible for any damage caused from the use of our materials*.
Customers must satisfy themselves as to the suitability of materials* for use in their projects.

(*Materials refers to any ribbons, braids, trimmings, laces or fabrics in our range)
