Simplicity Collection – my new hand dyed silk ribbon range


The Simplicity Collection is my new range of bias cut, hand dyed, habotai silk ribbons. These ribbons are borne out of my love for textures and raw materials, and are reflected in their names. Whilst I am addicted to colour, this year I have felt a yearning for a more pared back look – ribbons that compliment the amazing stationery and floristry works they adorn, rather than overwhelm. 


Simplicity Collection – Chalk

I often get asked for a classic white shade, and so I wanted to offer something that would compliment any other wedding decor. Chalk is simplicity at its best.

I am a huge fan of handmade and textured papers, and wanted to include a yellowy shade that will go perfectly with the unbleached paper stocks that I adore.

People are always searching for that perfect nude shade – a neutral colour that is warm and romantic – and I’m in love with this one – it will go perfectly with any pastel florals or stationery I think.

Pale grey continues to be a popular colour choice for weddings – and it’s easy to see why. It is elegant and timeless and goes with so many colour ways. I also have an addiction to handmade ceramics at the moment and wanted to have a nod to this wonderful raw material here.

Styling flat lays with my silk ribbons (and here gorgeous stationery from Laura Elizabeth Patrick) is one of my most rewarding parts of my job. I adore putting colours and textures together to create visual stories of both my own and others’ work. If you’d like me to style your products please do get in touch.
