At Viola Milano, we value craftsmanship our entire collections. First class materials at meticulous quality control make our products look beautiful, and last long as well. However, we think that the handwork of our wonderful artigiani adds another dimension of beauty to our range. Hand rolling the edges on our ties and pocket squares serves no practical purpose, it is simply a matter of aesthetics. We like to see this distinctive handwork as a reminder of the importance of beauty and letting things taking their time in our everyday lives, especially in this age of mass production and efficiency hysteria.
Block Stripe Silk Jacquard
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.
