Grosgrain ribbon dates back to the early 17th century, when it was commonly used for making garments and is characterized by its durable ribbed texture. The “s” is silent and the ribbon is pronounced like “grow” “grain”. It is made of corded fabric which gives it the ribbed appearance. Thick, sturdy, and durable – materials used in the production of Grosgrain vary from polyester and nylon to silk and wool. Grosgrain made with polyester is ideal for crafting and wrapping presents, as it’s a bit lighter and more flexible than other fibers and materials. In terms of crafting, it is popularly used for making hair bows, wrapping presents, embellishing clothes, and much more! You can shop Paper Mart’s large selection of Grosgrain Ribbons here.
