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 3,35 inches wide to have a predominant silk and 58 or 59 inches long to suit any style. Whether you like the longer side or not!
The choice of 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 stands up better, that remains light without denigrating the quality of construction. The positive point is the choice of not having a lining, which gives you real comfort when you wear it!
A silk of rare finesse
The fabrics are chosen from my workshops, which are supplied directly from around Lake Como: we have chosen a silk of a rare fineness (24 mummi) to allow a light tie with a flowing fall.
(the mummy is the unit of weight per square metre, one mummy = 4,31g/m square)
A particular silk “Il raso di seta”: simple definition it is a satin weave with a shiny aspect. It is for us the most exclusive silk on line!
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.
