The world's finest woven edge Petersham ribbon. 100% Rayon, washable, dry cleanable, colorfast, less than 10% shrinkage. Petersham is often confused with grosgrain ribbon but the important difference is that the Petersham has a scalloped edge which allows you to shape the ribbon. See Sandra Betzina's book Power Sewing Step-by-Step for a neat, easy to make waistband facing using Petersham.

Be sure to preshrink where necessary before use with steam or by spritzing with water and pressing with iron set for rayon.

    Color not what I hoped for

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 31st 2015

    Interactions with The Sewing Place were amazing. Prompt, informative, clear. I really liked the experience and would order from them again. Sadly, even though the site included a color guide, the color of the ribbon was lighter than I needed, so I'm disappointed in the product, but not with The Sewing Place.

    Color not as expected

    Posted by Laurel Amatangelo on Jul 30th 2015

    While the ribbon is nice, the color is way off from what you see on screen (which is expected) but also way off from the attached color sheet that came with it. I ordered the teal but it really is more of a turquoise. Luckily it's rayon so I can dye it for my needs.

    I'm learning about the various uses of petersham ribbon and the samples I ordered are beautiful. Loads of colors to choose from.
