A very light, soft and yet strong material, bright and vivid colors, and a fine finish are combined in these Pastorelli ribbons, which have been used extensively at high-level competitions such as the World Championships in Kiew in 2013, Turkey in 2014, Stuttgart in 2015, and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games!
Being an artisan product PASTORELLI does not guarantee the correspondence between the real color of the item and the color displayed on the screen. It may also happen that making multiple ribbons from the same batch, ribbon shades might be a slightly different one from another. Little paint stains do not represent commercial flows.
Ribbons are available in multiple colors and 3 different lengths, there is a ribbon for every taste and use:
- 5.2m (36g) - FIG-approved for junior individual and team competitions
- 6.2m (37g) - FIG-approved for senior individual and team competitions
An extra 20cm length is added on purpose as the end of the ribbons are not "heavily stitched" because this would impact performance. As a result, from time to time the ribbon end will require re-stitching and the extra length is added to accommodate this.
Warning: to obtain a light ribbon (a sought-after quality in high-level Rhythmic Gymnastics), team Pastorelli has chosen to produce with dedicated machines a very fine and delicate yarn! This implies more attention in its use as well as due care in storing it, ideally in its dedicated ribbon-winder.
