Similar to BRAND’S® Health Museum and some factories in this area, Ribbon King Museum is open to the public for an educational tour and organises workshops that allow visitors to get hands-on-experiences with their products, in this case, it is ribbons. Activities here include ribbon weaving using machines, as well as learning various ribbon-tying techniques.

You must be wondering how it is possible to manufacture this high volume of ribbons. Well, I was informed that in a year, Ribbon King produces an average of 4,000 designs! My, that’s a lot of brain juice to expend. Luckily, there is BRAND’S® next door!
