We. Love. Ribbon.
Always have done – you can't beat the excitement of browsing a haberdashery, for us it really is on a par with the feeling you get as a child in a sweet shop. It's something about the sheer variety on offer, shelves piled high with beautiful fabrics in every hue. Have you ever felt envious of characters in costume drama's set in Georgian times?! There are so many scenes where they visit little stores on their high streets to choose ribbons and lace for a new hat – we would love to do that!
Anyway, back to business .....we source the ribbon for all of our gift boxes from the famous VV Rouleaux in London's Marylebone Lane.
VV Rouleaux really is one of the most beautiful and inspiring stores to browse - with huge windows on two sides, it’s filled with light in the summer and yet manages to be cosy in winter with its creaking wooden floors and rows and rows of ribbon and trims to get lost in. The downside is having to make decisions surrounded by all that glorious choice.
The team at this award winning store are extremely knowledgeable and always so helpful. They offer bespoke services and run regular workshops such as tassel making and millinery design. It is the destination for many designers and it supplies major fashion houses, regularly getting namechecked in Vogue. If you’re interested in fashion or textiles, or just appreciate a pretty store - it is well worth a visit, and there’s plenty of lovely coffee shops with great people watching nearby – you could make a day of it, we often try to!
