Offray is a brand of grosgrain, as are Yama, Schiff, UB, etc.

Why I buy offray:
made in the usa
love the feel of the ribbon. It's a stiff, not shiny, and the ribbon holds up well while making bows.

It's my favorite Everyone here is probably sick of hearing about how muchI love it

I am an offray girl too

It is just the brand name and personal preference. I have some UB dots, but I am not a fan of the ribbon itself, just the price LOL

Ohhh! Okay lol. I was on the RABOM site and they have a category for solid grosgrain and then that offray grosgrain so I wasn't sure if it was a different type.

Thank you so much for clearing that up for me

I buy my ribbon from RABOM. Do they use both Offray and Schiff? I really like the ribbon that is thicker and a smidgen narrower than 3/8". Does anyone know if its O or S?

Offray is a good ribbon, but Schiff ribbon is super high quality. My customers are starting to ask for Schiff ribbon by name in my bows. You can order Schiff from The ribbon retreat in 5 yards to try it out. Get some and compare it to Offray, you won't be sorry!
