When Joseph-Marie Jacquard demonstrated his improved mechanical loom in 1801, he revolutionised weaving forever. His new design allowed for automated weaving of complex patterns, that give unparalleled complexity and character to fabrics. In order to create be most beautiful ties possible, we source our beautiful silk jacquard from the world’s finest mills in Italy and England.
The tip is simply the fabric that is used to finish the backside of a tie. Even though this part of your tie is not usually visible, we use the same fabric for the tip as we do for the shell of the tie. This beautiful method is called self-tipping and, while more expensive to produce, creates a more beautiful tie that stands up to closer scrutiny without leaving you disappointed.
When most people think about a tie, they are most likely imagining a classic 3-fold construction. While it is the simplest construction offered in our collections, it is by no means an inferior option. Creating a beautiful tie is all about balance, and many times the light and minimalistic 3-fold is the perfect choice. For instance, it is ideal for light summer ties or for heavier fabrics that would become too hefty with other constructions.
