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.

Care Instructions: Colorfast. Machine Wash/Warm. Tumble or drip-dry. Less than 10% shrinkage. Dry Cleanable.

• 100% Rayon

• 33 yards (30m) per roll

• Made in Japan

Priced and sold by the yard. Order minimum is 1 yard.

Full Spools of Petersham Ribbon contain 33 yards.

All of our ribbon is sold in increments of one yard. So if you order “1”, you’ll get one yard, “2” and you’ll get two yards. Our website does not calculate in fractional yards (for example: 1 ½ ). Be sure to choose Color and Width, then how many yards you’d like.

Actual Ribbon Color Card Available - $29.95

When ordering the Color card: You need to select the Color Card option in BOTH the Color and Width drop down menus. It's the top item in the list.

    Good quality product but not the color I was looking for. Hard to match shades of pink using an iPhone. I would rate it 5 if colors matched.

    I use the Petersham ribbon as the base for trims applied to Chanel style jackets. The Sewing Place has the widest array of colors of the Petersham ribbon that I have found! I order all of my ribbon from there!

    Great source for Petersham Gros Grain Ribbon

    Posted by Susan Monaghan on Apr 25th 2021

    The Sewing Place is my "go to" place for Petersham. They have a full array of colors and widths, and will send customers a visual with each color shown with the name of the color for easy matching and ordering. I have even sent a piece of my fabric on a hard to match shade and the Sewing Place was very helpful in identifying the closest color. Please don't ever consider buying any other gros grain ribbon for sewing, as there is no comparison between Petersham and what you find by the roll in most fabric and craft stores.

    Fantastic ribbon!

    Posted by Eileen Starr on Apr 12th 2021

    The ribbon is gorgeous and works so beautifully around curves. There are so many colors and I ordered the color card that gives samples of all the colors, and examples of all widths. So helpful.
