Burgundy grenadine tie made from a wonderfully soft silk/wool/cashmere mix. A more versatile winter tie is hard to find; we like this one especially well paired with a green tweed suit, white/blue striped shirt, navy pocket square, striped braces and brown suede shoes.
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.
