Ralph Lauren Black Watch tartan ribbon 38mm x 25m reel

TEST LISTING - full range of tartan ribbon currently available at tartan-ribbon.com

  • this is an exclusive version of Black Watch ribbon commissioned for Ralph Lauren - we believe they used Black Watch plaid to tie around garments and some gift packaging as part of a Christmas campaign
  • Cake Stuff (tartan-ribbon.com) were involved in the design and production of this ribbon so we were allowed to stock the small production over-run - this ribbon is a rare as hens' teeth!
  • the main difference between this variant and our other Black Watch tartan ribbon is the design is asymmetric, so the green over check does not appear in the centre of the ribbon
  • this version of Black Watch tartan ribbon also has blue stitched edges and more black in the weave, giving it an overall darker appearance - it is stunning!
  • authentic Scottish Black Watch tartan ribbon - officially known as the Government Tartan - one of the most famous and popular of all tartans
  • click here to read more about the Black Watch tartan's history

Ribbon is often bought purely on suitability of colour / shade, so we must respectfully point out the following to assist you in deciding which ribbon to order from Cake Stuff . . .

  • we use special software to ensure the shades shown on our site are as close as possible to the actual item, but we have no control over the way your monitor / tablet / phone displays these colours so please remember the shades shown are representations only
  • we do not sell ribbon "by the metre" although some tartan ribbons are available in 5m top-up packs
  • manufacturers advise that shades can vary slightly between batches although, in our experience, this is rare
  • there is no standardised colour coding or naming system beyond traditional recognition of clan / tartan names - tartan ribbon from one manufacturer may look slightly different from another manufacturer due to differing dyes and manufacturing techniques
  • in addition, even with the establishing of The Scottish Register of Tartans, differences in opinion still remain between weavers and other tartan sources so please check the image of the tartan ribbon you are ordering as this is the variant we will supply, regardless of the name
  • Cake Stuff sell ribbon specifically for use on cakes, cupcakes and sugarcraft items - it is therefore classed as a Food Contact Item. Food safety is therefore top priority so we cannot accept the return of any opened ribbon under any circumstances
  • you have the right to inspect the ribbon on receipt so you can check the shade(s) without opening the reel.  Retail customers have the right to return ribbon ordered from us under the Distance Selling Regulations, but please remember the ribbon must be UNOPENED and you are responsible for return postage and safe delivery to us before any refund can be processed
