Gion - the most famous and respected geisha district in whole Japan. In Kyoto, the ancient capital of the land of rising sun, you can still have a glimpse at night at these highly trained and respected artists. Here the time stands still and you can still feel the atmosphere of pre-industrial Japan including beautiful wooden houses and highly skilled craftsmen. As Shibumi was always very connected to Japanese beauty, we decided to pay respect to this special place and create a tie with the logo of Gion.
Wear it with a grey suit, white shirt, navy barathea braces, white linen square and black shoes. Just as simple as beautiful - like the Japanese sense for aesthetics.
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.
