The airiness of grenadine’s open weave and the fullness of a 7-fold construction makes this tie come to life. Couple this with its rich midnight blue background and pearl dots, and you have a tie that you’ll find yourself reaching for time and time again. Pair it with our light blue poplin shirts and beige/brown barathea braces for a sophisticated and elegant look.
Sevenfolds are the the pinnacle of craftsmanship and the dream of every tie aficionado. The difference between Shibumi sevenfolds and almost every other tie is that there is no lining. So the tie just consists of the upper silk (and thread, of course), folded inwards seven times to give the tie the necessary volume. This construction method is very puristic and elegant, but at the same time luxuriously lavish.
In the heart of the Italian silk industry, Como, lies one of the oldest silk weavers in Europe. Founded in mid-19th-century, at first as a supplier of silk for furnishings and clothing, they began to make silk for ties when it took its modern shape at the beginning of the 20th century. To this day, a lot of historic, wooden looms are in use, which have not been produced in decades. But there is no substitute for them: our popular grenadine silk is woven on them, for example. We just love this heritage of Italian craftsmanship and we do our best to keep those traditions alive.
