Ribbon embroidery is an old-fashioned romantic embroidery using ribbons. With this type of embroidery you can create beautiful floral motifs and decorative stitch patterns. Using different sized ribbons creates a more organic look than yarn. It can only done by hand as there is until today no machine which can embroider this way.
Ribbon embroidery, also known as Rococo Embroidery, made its first appearance in England in the early 17th century. London dressmakers began copying the French technique of embroidery. Ribbon embroidery expands out onto quilting, showcasing beautiful stitches along the seams of each patch, to embellish clothing, for framed artwork, on sachets, and various other fabric items such as pillowcases, towels and tablecloths.
