on 3 March 2017
I'm confused by the ribbon I've recieved. I understand that pointe shoe ribbon needs to grip the ankle/tights when tied - so one side needs to be matt - so satin both sides is a no no. However I've received double sided satin ribbon which is supposed to be from Roch Valley - a ballet supplier. The ribbon itself is good quality but is not what I would use for point shoes since it would slip and not provide the required support. It would probably be fine for flat ballet shoes, though maybe a little wide for that, but definitely not the correct ribbon for pointe shoes.
