Really great pointe shoe ribbon that is actually made of cotton! It's ribbed, so it has grip. Although they don't stretch, the weave and material make it comfortable on the ankle and don't cut into the skin. It is matte, which is nice compared to most shiny ribbon. The color is a little darker than ballet pink, more like a soft peach color. The color matches perfectly with my pointe shoes. Suggestion: to seal the edges, use nail polish and not a lighter. Cotton is flammable, so it won't help, but nail polish does the trick! I will be ordering more to stock up since this is my favorite ribbon!

Cotton canvas ribbon
Love this ribbon! Not for everyone, but worked very well for me - will be reordering more. The color is more of a vibrant peach, probably a little darker than most pointe shoes, but this worked well and matched my pointe shoes great, since they are more on the peach side. For reference, this ribbon is the exact same color as the Gaynor Minden Elaaahstic. The width is about 3cm wider than typical pointe shoe ribbon. Its thick, but still pliable. Because it's cotton canvas and is ribbed, it doesn't slip as easily as ribbon, and the knot stays very well. Has a little bit of give, and is significantly more comfortable than some ribbons which cut into your ankle if you tie them too tight. Another bonus, if typical ribbons give your ankles 'muffin top' this will give your ankles smooth lines! This ribbon does fray very easily, probably more than regular ribbon. You might want to seal the edge with nail nail polish, as burning the edges doesn't work well with cotton! I would say this is the best ribbon I have used.
