Gift Ribbon (Germany 1950s)

Ribbon was precious, kept, ironed and re-used, as was wrapping paper. In my parent's bedroom, there was a drawer full of paper and ribbons. For every birthday and Christmas, the same ribbons and papers would reappear, to be carefully folded and put away afterwards.

I have kept a few of these ribbons - they are fragile & delicate and a reminder of festive occasions.
