Di van Niekerk’s Silk  and Organza ribbons

Di van Niekerk, the author of fourteen embroidery books, has her own dazzling range of hand-painted pure silk and organza ribbons to suit every occasion.

There are 135 beautiful, natural colours to choose from and, as the need arises, new colours are introduced.

Di and Carol hand paint all of her highly sought after ribbons, which makes them ideal for ribbon embroidery, jewellery-making and other crafts. Turn your work into a masterpiece with minimum effort on your part!

The Silk and Organza ribbons are variegated and designed for authentic, life-like flowers and leaves. They are colourfast and washable. As her ribbons are all hand painted and not dyed, the colour is stronger along the edge of the ribbon. This is what results in such a natural finish.

The different shades blend beautifully, allowing the colours to merge with one another so that your completed embroidery looks so real, you will be delighted with the results! There are 11 different widths to choose from.
