Signature ribbon: Angela Liguori

My Aunt Steph has two or three signature ribbons… the paper may vary, but I can spot her ribbon from a mile away. And sometimes less really is more. So I decided to try to find a signature ribbon of my own this past holiday season.
I met Angela Ligouri at the National Stationery Show last May. The buyers for Anthroplogie were swooning with me over her cotton Italian ribbon… personally I prefer the loose weave (below) to the tight weave (above). I love how Angela uses a tiny pin to secure the loose end on the roll–it works so well!
I actually found that the neutral color goes with just about everything so I may have found my signature ribbon, although red is also very versatile and festive. The great thing about buying ribbon in bulk is that although you have to fork up some cash up front, you’re saving loads of money compared to last minute drugstore purchases of a far inferior product. Angela also loves vintage stamps and included some in my package as a thank you… and she ships internationally!

  1. I like the idea of a signature ribbon. I think I’d get some shade of blue – my favorite color.

  2. Love the story about your aunt – my mom and aunt are the ones who taught me about wrapping gifts with fabric ribbon, too! Especially when the holidays roll around, it’s so hectic that it must be nice to have just 1 or 2 ribbons that you can whip out and use for all your gifts.
