Environmentally Friendly Single Sided Satin Ribbon

Already the popular choice for branded ribbons for hampers, our Single Sided Satin Ribbon is ribbon with environmentally aware production credentials behind it, with improvements and advances being made continually.

Manufactured from wood pulp from certified plantations, it’s produced in a safe, closed-loop process with material wastes recycled back into the system for reuse with no release into the environment. Used water is cleaned and returned to the source with routine testing to ensure thriving biodiversity in the local river. This optimized, low-impact manufacturing process produces less greenhouse gas emissions and uses less water and has a significantly lower environmental impact compared to other conventional cellulose based fibres. The resulting material is 59% Biobased as certified under the USDA BioPreferred Program. The yarn itself holds independent certifications from TUV Austria regarding its ability to biodegrade in soil and water environments.

Available in a great range of popular colours, this ribbon also has a fast lead time, and is one of our biggest sellers.

Environmentally Friendly Cotton Ribbon

Manufactured from 100% Australian grown cotton, with low impact production required to weave our ribbon, natural fibres result in the ribbon closest to nature. It’s completely biodegradable.

Our traditional Herringbone Cotton Ribbon provides a textured look with strength and substance, but it’s the tactile herringbone weave that makes it stand out. In spite of its texture, our superior printing technique means it prints beautifully, and even quite detailed logos are crisp and clear.

For something with a modern edge, then our Flat Cotton Ribbon with its clean lines and simplicity is a sophisticated choice.

We offer the popular natural colour for a more organic look, as well as classic white, in both our Flat and Herringbone Cotton Ribbon. Any PMS colour can be printed onto our Cotton Ribbon.

  • Minimum Order: 5 x 100m roll

  • 1 colour print in your PMS colour

  • Colours: White or Natural coloured ribbon is available in both herringbone and flat cotton ribbon

  • Widths: 10mm, 15mm, 25mm, 38mm
