Brown dotted tie made from Shantung silk, a wonderfully simple summer classic. Works with many informal summer outfits, we especially like it with a green hopsack jacket, white pants, blue/white striped shirt, turquoise pocket square and navy striped braces and suede loafers.
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.
