| | Re: Type of Ribbon Important?
Grosgrain is what is usually used when making hairbows. It's the "standard" ribbon. This ribbon is a stiffer/thicker ribbon. It almost has a ribbed appearance. Other types of ribbon are:
woven-has the same pattern on front and back.
I pretty much only use grosgrain to make bows. Most all bows you see are basically grosgrain.
