Forest and grass block stripes in grenadine weave. This tie’s construction is unique; the wool gives a certain formality, depth, and warmth to its colors, while the silk adds just the right amount of light to make this tie appropriate in nearly all occasions. Ideal with a navy suit, white shirt, floral pocket square, navy braces and brown suede adelaides.
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.
