Know-how: our handmade ties made in Italy
One of the peculiarities of our ties? They have no lining: they are therefore exclusively made of silk folded on itself (as well as their woollen trimming). This construction ensures a much more fluid and supple fall.
The absence of a lining also allows you to take advantage of our ultra-sophisticated finishes, especially the hand-rolled edges.
It also allows you to make beautiful tie knots, whether you’re a four-in-hand or Windsor enthusiast: making beautiful drops effortlessly will become child’s play.
At the same time, the woollen trimming ensures a consistent fall, to give a beautiful hand to the whole.
One 8.5 cm wide to have a predominant silk and 147 or 150 cm long to suit any style. Whether you like the longer side or not!
The choice of the 5-ply
The subject of difference between the constructions, apart from being very personal, is not very obvious when we talk about the choice of a 5-ply or the choice of a 7-ply. Because for us, these two constructions are really similar. However, we note a distinction in the transition from 3-layer to 5-layer. You have a tie that holds better, that remains light without denigrating the quality of construction. The positive point is added with the choice of not having a lining which gives you a real comfort when wearing it!
Une soie d’une finesse rare
Les tissus sont choisis auprès de mes ateliers, qui se fournissent directement autour du lac de Côme: nous avons retenu une soie d’une finesse rare (24 momi) pour permettre une cravate légère au tombé fluide.
(le momme est l’unité de poids au mètre carré, un momme = 4,31g/m carré)
Une soie particulière “Il raso di seta” : définition simple c’est un tissage satin à l’aspect brillant. Elle est pour nous la soie la plus exclusive en ligne !
Patterns and style tips
Paisley is a timeless, unisex and intergenerational pattern. It is an accumulation of water drops composed of plant motifs. Also known as paisley patterns, its name comes from the Scottish town of Paisley.
Originally it is a pattern found in Persia, in other words Iran. This motif was widely used to decorate royal insignia, crowns, clothes…but also widely used by the general population.
Over time it became a decorative element widely used in their culture and even in architecture, even silk. Taken up for our winter collection on a light wool, the design will be easily adaptable for our next silks.
