Mogador is a distinctive weave for summer ties that combines cotton and silk threads. It has a similar look and feel to the rather known Irish poplin, despite that poplin is a mix of silk and worsted wool. Both weaves have a tight weave with a very fine ribbed pattern. The slightly stiffer feel of Mogador combined with a twill pattern is especially well suited for classic striped ties.
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.
