White dots on burgundy ground: an absolute classic, here in a summery shantung variant. Beautiful with a blue hopsack jacket, mid-grey pants, light blue shirt, white pocket square with floral print and brown striped braces.
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.
