The perfect finishing touch for contemporary styling: faux leather ribbon

You can use faux leather ribbons to fashionably embellish an outfit in no time at all. As well as wide ribbons, we also have bias binding and piping in faux leather. All you need to do is to decide whether you’d like to trim the edges of your new poncho with shiny, silver-coloured bias binding or in a simple black. It’s essential that you insert a leather needle in your sewing machine to work the faux leather ribbons and that you select a somewhat larger stitch length.
