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 one 58 inches 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 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!
Mixture of silk and cotton. The “mogador” combines a quality of weaving that allows for a heavier, thicker and more robust tie.
Its touch remains pleasant and its aspect shows a certain shine.
The result is more textured, with a real relief, takes better the light and allows to highlight the patterns (which are not printed, but restored thanks to a weaving of threads).

Mogador Vs Jacquard
Just like jacquard silk, mogador silk provides a more pronounced effect.
Here we have richer tones, with threads woven together in different colours. To recognise a mogador or jacquard fabric, it’s very simple, you will always see the contrasting threads on the reverse side.
