A Viola Milano seven fold tie is a true testament to the skill possessed by the craftsmen in our laboratorio. In addition to requiring substantially more of our exclusive fabrics to make, the ancient seven fold construction requires time, patience and knowledge to fully master. The process results in a slightly asymmetrical knot that gives off a feeling of ’sprezzatura’ and subtle elegance that we at Viola Milano love.
Chinese legend has it that silk was first discovered by the beautiful concubine Lei Zu. She was drinking tea in a garden when some wild cocoons dropped in her bowl. As she tried to remove them, she saw the fine strings of silk that seemed to go on forever. While we cannot for certain say who discovered silk, we can trace its use back to ancient China. Via the silk route the material reached Europe where it became a luxury worthy of royalty. The lustre and delicate feel of silk make them ideal for smart outfits in any season.
