This is a new quality that we developed with a printing manufactory in Como which we call Madder Linen. The linen is dyed in that particular madder blue first and then the design is printed on top; screen printed, each color, step by step. The hand is drier than your average linen and the tie knot is just superb. Simply put, this is a wonderful summery alternative to classic ancient madder silk.
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.
