CHA Summer 2011 | Ribbon & Trim

CHA was full of fabulous ribbons and trim.  Everywhere we turned there was ribbon!

Maya Road had an amazing collection.

The textures were beyond scrumptious. Zipper ribbon, petals, flowers, and more frills and ruffles than one could ever dream of!

 The colors and textures were amazing!

The ways we could use all this ribbon is endless!

The frayed edges on the ribbon used in the flowers here give such a textural look to these tags.

So much texture! 

Another booth with new ribbons, trims, and even netting was Webster’s Pages. Their new Tinsel trims are unique, fresh, and come in four cheery hues and are available by the yard.

The colors and sparkle in these ribbons brings so much interest to these pages.

Netting and ruffles… a perfect combination for airy flowers!

We saw so much ribbon out there, it was hard to pick our favorites.  What is your favorite ribbon trend you’ve seen so far?

So much inspiration!

How did RABOM get started?

The story of Ribbons and Bows Oh My! began in 2002 in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, just outside Chicago, when company founder Jennifer Huinker bought $50 worth of denim grosgrain ribbon and sold it on EBay. A stay-at-home mom, Jennifer was interested in a business which would allow her the flexibility of operating from her home and keeping her own work schedule. Today, RABOM is currently approaching $3 Million in annual sales.
