| in search of: hand dyed silk ribbon

Craft in Portland!
I am in search of nice, hand-dyed SILK ribbon with finished edges to use as lacing for my wedding dress that I'm working on. I bought some online, only to realize that the bias-cut edges aren't finished! There's no way this will stand up to being dragged through the metal lacing rings and then cinched up tight - the edges fray! GAH!
I could easily find satin ribbon that would work, but I have my heart set on something more "organic". The dress is a shade darker than the absinthe in my user pic, and I'm looking for a gold or orange tones for the ribbon. Anyone know where I can find such a treat in town??
