CREPE DE CHINE RIBBON

The World’s News (Sydney, NSW: Saturday, 19th September 1925)

WRAPS OF CREPE DE CHINE RIBBON

In Paris, the supple Calemard ribbons of crepe de Chine, obtainable in lovely colors, and endowed with splendid washing qualities, have long been used for lingerie by every fastidious woman. At the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs this year, is an interesting stand showing a multitude of uses for this fascinating and practical ribbon. A delightful boudoir wrap is made out of a few yards of the broad variety, and there are slippers, cushions, and hosts of other charming frivolities. Visitors to Paris never fail to inspect this attractive stand, and to test for themselves the virtues, of the new crepe de Chine ribbon, which has always received a universal success.
