This is the definitive modern approach to a traditional craft. It features over 250 specially-commissioned photographs, which clearly demonstrate each stage. For centuries ribbons have been used for decoration, and as status symbols and tokens of love. The choice of shades, fabrics, textures and styles ranges from traditional silks, satins and velvets to metallics and exotic prints. By mastering a few easy techniques, you can turn simple strands of ribbon into exquisite artefacts, or use them for gift wrapping, floristry, and trimming furnishings and costumes.

From bows and roses, to more intricate ribbon embroidery and elaborate ribbon weaving techniques, this comprehensive book provides a complete course in working with ribbons. Mix metallic ribbons with luscious cords and gold tassels in a cushion; use plain ribbons to enliven a lampshade; or embellish baubles and pine cones to make Christmas decorations. It is a gallery of the work of contemporary designers that represents the varied approaches and styles that can be achieved.
