Dark green silk tie with shadowed floral pattern in lighter green. Simple, but unusual: just as we like it here at Shibumi. Works wonderfully with a beige Solaro suit, white/light blue striped shirt, burgundy pocket square, striped braces and suede oxfords.
In the quiet hills of the British countryside lies the traditional heart of English silk printing: Macclesfield. Once home to numerous manufactories that produced the inimitable screen-printed silk connoisseurs love so dearly, today there are only two left that produce what internationally became known as “British Neats”. But the quality that comes out of these traditional places is still unparalleled: nothing beats the depth and character of hand-printed silk. The time-consuming printing process requires a lot of experience to get right, as the color reacts after printing with oxygen and forms the final shade: a delicate process, requiring a delicate hand. The result is a lush, rich, almost 3D-like effect we just love.
