Recycled ribbons that do not cost the Earth

Are you looking for a sustainable packaging solution for your product?

Here at Berisfords, we are always proud to be at the forefront of a new product and design innovation, especially when it helps the environment. That is why we are delighted to be able to offer a range of recycled ribbons that are manufactured from 100% recycled polyester yarn.

Understanding the effects of disposed packaging on our environment, we wanted to make an impact. With a high volume of gift wrapping accumulated as waste from significant holidays such as Christmas, the opportunity was right in front of us. Create sustainable packaging to help the environment, both for the future and at present.

Eco-friendly packaging does not have to compromise on appearance, our recycled ribbons retain the Berisfords quality in both durability and style.

With the ever-increasing worldwide focus and awareness on recycling and sustainability, we have partnered with a European yarn supplier to develop sustainable ribbons that are woven with yarns that are made from 100% post-customer waste – “PET” or to put it simply, “plastic bottles”.

Our Grosgrain ribbon collection is available in over 30 colours and 4 different widths, each perfected with the classic ribbed texture.

Those seeking a silky yet sustainable flourish to their gifts can opt for Satin. The stylish recycled ribbon has an extensive choice of over 80 shades with all the charm of traditional versions, however now with a sustainable story.


As the aim for global sustainable actions grows, ensuring your packaging adheres to this goal matters. Those businesses bringing a stylish finish to their products with a ribbon or bow can benefit from recycled packaging.

Shoppers are aware of the sustainable actions demonstrated by companies. Research proves more choose those with an environmentally conscious value highlighted in their policy. Reflecting this ethos into smaller details with eco-friendly ribbons spotlights efforts to influence the reduction of waste.

How is the recycled ribbon made?

The used plastic bottles that we use for our recycled ribbons are collected via various recycling points within mainland Europe. These bottles are thoroughly cleaned for hygienic purposes and then broken down into smaller plastic elements. The plastic flakes are melted into liquid form, and then converted into filaments. A number of filaments are then combined together and spun to create a 100% recycled ribbon yarn.

Certified by GRS

Recycled ribbons

At Berisfords Ribbons we are committed to manufacturing ribbons that don't cost the environment, providing a sustainable option for the future. We use thousands of used plastic bottles to reproduce beautiful ribbons so they are taken away from the ocean or general landfill, avoiding damage to these areas from items that could be recycled.
Recycled ribbons last the same length of time as all of the other ribbons in our collection with the bonus of being constructed from sustainable sources, in this case used plastic bottles. We like to think that all of our ribbons can be reused and re-gifted therefore fulufilling more than just a single use product.
That is definitely the plan! In fact from 2021 onwards we are committed to upgrading all of our UK manufactured ribbons to 100% recycled yarn.
