Frequently Asked Questions

Can I order a custom color?

Yes! We are able to accommodate a limited number of custom color requests per month depending on the order queue. Custom colors require up to 1-2 weeks to experiment and create. Due to the limitations of nature's color palette we may not be able to achieve every color but feel free to inquire. Please contact us here to request a custom color order. Minimum custom order is 10 yards (2 spools) and a $150 custom fee applies per color.

How are your items made?

All of our pieces are made in Detroit, Michigan using sustainably sourced fabrics and natural plant dyes. Plant dyes are made from foraged plants, food waste, floral waste and plant concentrates. All ribbon is hand cut, dyed and spooled in our studio with love. 

Do you offer samples?

Yes! Please see here for a sample card with many of our color and fabric offerings. Please note color offerings on sample cards are an example of a color family and the ribbon may not exactly match the shade as plant dyes have natural variation. We also offer one yard sample cuttings of all ribbons. 

Do you offer wholesale pricing?

Yes, we offer wholesale to a select number of brick and mortar retail shops feel align with our values and aesthetics. If you are interested in carrying Rosemarine Textiles in your shop, please contact us here.

Are Rosemarine Textiles pieces washable?

Yes! We highly recommend using a pH neutral soap (such as castile soap) to gently hand wash and hanging to dry. Treated properly, all Rosemarine Textiles pieces can last for many years to come.

Where are your dyes from?

We source our dyes from local restaurants (avocado and onion skins, etc), by foraging in the Detroit area (wild berries and flowers), utilize leftover floral arrangements in collaboration with local florists, and from companies that responsibly source plant dye materials.

How much ribbon should I order?

For bridal bouquets we recommend about 3 yards for a small to medium draping effect and 5 yards for a long dramatic drape. On a bridesmaid bouquet we use about 2.5 yards per bouquet - one spool should be enough for two bridesmaid bouquets. Boutonnieres use about 10"-15" of ribbon. For invitations we recommend estimating about 18" per invitation if tying around a card in a bow.

Can I return my wooden spool?

Yes! Return your wooden spool after you've used up all the ribbon and get a $7 credit towards your next order. Contact us here to get in touch with return shipping information.

Can you rush my order?

Yes - depending on the current order queue, for a 25% fee of the total cost of the order we can do our best to rush your order. Please note, we do our very best to get your order to you as quickly as possible but due to the nature of our handmade process, things do take time.

Do you offer rentals?

We cannot offer rentals at this time but please stay tuned for a forthcoming buyback program. Please join the mailing list here to be notified.

Can I borrow Rosemarine Textiles for my styled shoot?

Due to the large number of requests, we are unable to accommodate every inquiry to join a styled shoot. We do however love to collaborate on styled shoots that we feel align with our aesthetic of a design centric editorial. For shoots we are able to lend items for a small fee with the full cost of the item paid as a deposit.
