The art of silk ribbon embroidery dates back to the early 17th century when it was used mainly to embellish court garments, the uniforms of high-ranking military officers and the vestments and regalia of the clergy. Since its heyday, ribbon embroidery has enjoyed varying degrees of popularity, but it is a very satisfying technique as it's quite quick to do and the results are wonderfully decorative.

The information and skills needed for success with silk ribbon embroidery are presented in a clear and interesting way and the four lovely projects allow you to put all of the techniques into practice.
