CREATIVE PROCESS

Heather has been dying fabrics for over thirty years. Her technique and process undergo a beautiful journey, one completely unique to froufrou chic. Our ribbons are made from natural silk fabric which is hand-dyed in France into an exclusive palette of colors. Often drawing inspiration from the natural world, Heather spends hours testing and mixing pigments and dyes to craft the perfect blend. Every step of our process is done by hand; From dyeing, to tearing the fabric into ribbons, fraying the edges and then rolling onto our custom spools.

"I normally mix colors by intuition. Each batch of our ribbon is a little varied, but we love the touch of the hand in hand-made."
Heather Cowie

HAND-DYED

All of our ribbons begin as three yard lengths of natural silk fabric. They are then hand-dyed with complex powder dyes and pigments to achieve their unique coloring.

HANd-FRAYED

After drying and pressing our fabric, we tear the fabric into ribbons and begin the process of fraying to create a feathery soft and subtle edge. 

HAND-ROLLED

Our ribbons are then pressed and hand rolled onto our custom wooden spools. We tie each ribbon with  a small cut off of our silk in matching color.

 Froufrou Chic ribbons was founded in 2013 after Ginny's ribbon order for a wedding in France did not arrive. Only days before the wedding, Heather found some of her hand-dyed fabric which we tore into ribbon widths. From that humble beginning we now have a world wide company based in Europe and USA.

We offer our 'classic' range of colors, as well as limited editions designed seasonally. Occasionally we bring out a group of colors as a collection. The classic range comes in four widths. The sizes of the limited editions varies. Each custom spool has two, three yard seamless lengths, except for the two and a half inch, which also comes in three yard length.

Curated Bouquet Ribbon Collections

Knowing how hard it can be for a bride to pick her wedding ribbons, we have created a service for brides to choose from a curated collection of bouquet ribbons.  Being able to see how colors work together and know the right widths and lengths can make your bridal ribbon search that one step easier. 

 These collections come rolled on individual custom spools and are packaged in muslin bags, wrapped in samples of your ribbon colors and include a calligraphy card with the brides name to present as a gift or keepsake. 

Please see our soon to be released collection by clicking the 'bespoke bouquet' tab on our menu bar.
