How is Grosgrain Ribbon Used?

Grosgrain is durable, versatile, and useful for just about any craft project!

One of the questions we get all the time is, “what is grosgrain ribbon used for?” Our answer is simple: you can use it for almost anything!

If you don’t already know, grosgrain is a heavy-duty ribbon, easily recognizable by the distinct ribs that run across its surface. Most grosgrain ribbons are made from silk or nylon, though historically they have been made from wool, mohair, silk or some combination of the three. The stiffness of the fabric means that grosgrain is functional as well as beautiful, and it’s used for everything from watch bands, to book-binding, to bows, collars, and more!

If you haven’t used grosgrain ribbon before, give it a try! Its durability and style is unparalleled. Given the broad range of sizes, colors, and styles available, grosgrain ribbon is sure to be an inspiration for your next craft project. Take a look through our high-quality grosgrain ribbon selection to find the ribbon that’s right for you!
