Our Story

May Arts was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler. May Arts’ founder Mae wanted ribbon lovers in the United States to experience high-end decorative ribbon from her home country of Taiwan, a tradition we are still proud of today, even as we expand to offer more products made in the USA and in Colombia.

As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of superior quality, classic design, and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order.
