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 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.
