Handmade in Italy
Fabric: 100% silk
Length: 160cm (= 63 inch)
Construction: 3-fold hand rolled
Classic navy/burgundy color combination in summery shantung silk. Block stripes are at the same time very simple and very unusual; this tie goes wonderfully with a brown jacket, beige chino, light blue OCBD, Onnagata Pocket Square, brown linen braces and derbies.
We just love Shantung. It’s exactly what Shibumi stands for - subtle beauty without flashiness. In this case literally: the fabric has a wonderful matte appearance, the colors are lusciously deep. Add in the tactile pleasure of the slubby raw silk and you have one of the most gorgeous ties imaginable.
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.
