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

• Made in Japan

    The petersham did exactly what I wanted it to: bind a neckline inside a polar fleece jacket. It took the curve beautifully and gives it a professional look.

    I keep coming back because they have the most colors and sizes of petersham I have found from a USA seller. Great quality, fast shipping, and easy to work with.

    This ribbon is the perfect finish for my knitted, steeked cardigan sweaters. There is a lovely selection of colors, and the shipping is super speedy!

    Great selection of Petersham ribbon!

    The Sewing Place is THE place to buy Petersham Ribbom. Their stock of colors and widths is amazing. They will provide a color card with about 80 different colors. I use it as the base for the trim on Chanel-style jackets, and am always successful in finding just the right color—and width. Service is good so that your order comes quickly. I have found the array of other sewing tools and their customer service to be excellent as well.

    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!
