This tie pays homage to the city of Florence – home of Shibumi – whose symbol is the “giglio”, “fleur-de-lis”. Works well with navy and grey suits, our oxford made-to-order white shirt, one of our ukiyo-e pocket squares and burgundy barathea braces.
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.
