Cream City Ribbon

Sustainable, Milwaukee-made gift wrappings

A few weeks back, I shopped the wonderful Christkindlmarkt at the Best Place Pabst, where my friend Fritz and I chatted at length with the owner of Cream City Ribbon. He was a delight, but even if he hadn't been, we would have stocked up on his locally-made ribbon. Seeing as it's the holiday season, we can all use a little extra flourish when it comes time to wrap our many gifts — and Cream City Ribbon gets my vote and my business. Just check out these super fun patterns!

The ribbon is actually 100% cotton, though it feels more like heavy craft paper with a bit of a wood grain texture to it. But it's super flexible — easily tied in a bow, of course! The point of the 100% cotton is that it's entirely biodegradable. The designs printed on the cotton are made with soy-based, non-toxic inks. You can even order custom ribbon if, say, you're looking to tie up goodies in your wedding colors. It's just a cool operation, and it's happening right here in Milwaukee! You can shop Cream City Ribbon online at Happy gifting!
