Cream City Ribbon
Cream City Ribbon
Since the beginning, Cream City Caramels has used Cream City Ribbon to wrap our packages of buttery-delicious caramels! It's one of the ways that we try to promote our home town. Aside form that, it's very unique ribbon!
The folks at Cream City Ribbon tell it best: "Our origin is the local leather industry in Milwaukee, Wisconsin of the late 1800's.
Our artisans craft Cream City Ribbon on the very same original machines. The unique manufacturing techniques are sustained to make this ribbon like none other on the planet.
Cream City Ribbon's unique unwoven fabric is made with horizontal strands (warp) and without a cross-stitch (weft). Strands are held together with a water-soluble adhesive, giving Cream City Ribbon its strength, vibrant colors and signature paper-like feel.
Cream City Ribbon is made of cotton yarn that is 100% grown and dyed in the United States. Every aspect of the ribbon crafting process is examined to ensure a sustainable product and responsible business, employment and manufacturing practices.
Our cotton yarn is biodegradable by its very nature. Our mill meets the material safety standards for EATD (The Ecological and Toxicological Association of Dyes and Organic Pigments Manufacturers). Our mill also meets air and water quality and consumption standards including water re-use and low-flow dyeing machines.
Our adhesive is water-based and US made from bovine collagen which is a by-product of the meat and leather industry. Using an aqueous process (without the use of any solvents and/or harmful materials), this renewable adhesive is sustainable and low-impact on the environment. This natural product is approved by the FDA to be used as an adhesive for foodstuffs packing.
A majority of our ribbon is unprinted and therefore requires no ink, including our stripes and borders. Our inks are formulated of renewable resources, including but not limited to soy, linseed, china wood and corn oils. There are no harmful pigments used in our formulas and all inks meet the standards for indirect food contact."
