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.
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.
Imagine your favourite unconstructed sport coat. It is light, comfortable and wears beautifully. It is sporty and casual, yet elegant and refined. Our untipped ties are just like that sport coat – By removing the tipping (the fabric used to line the backside of a tie) we achieve a beautiful, light drape that is ideal for a downplayed, elegant look.
