Let’s talk about bow
We have listed below the main vocabulary you need to know to understand the delicate world of gift bows to wrap your most extraordinary gifts:
The ribbon: is an ornament of fabric, flat and narrow. It can be of many materials: cotton, satin, or synthetic fibers. Our winged and double loop gift bows are made of satin ribbon, while our tuxedo gift bows are made of velvet ribbon.
The standing part: is the end of the ribbon which is used to form the knot or the bow. It is to be opposed to the frame which constitutes the fixed base.
The loop: is the name given to a portion of the curved ribbon when one of the two ends of a bow is brought back on itself through the knot, without being crossed by another end or loop.
The elbow: is a twist of the ribbon under itself.
The tail (also called the “working end”, or the “running end“, “live end“, or “tag end“): is the long end extension of the bow, it is usually loose and the running ends fall most of the time symmetrically.
The heart: is the central part of the bow. It can be flat or with a twist effect or even doubled on some bow to add more volume.
