Our Japanese repp silks are woven in Kyoto on old, slow-speed shuttle looms in order to create a unique and outstanding quality. Although originally not tie fabrics, the ancient capital of Japan has a long tradition and expertise in weaving silks for kimonos. Our supplier Stile Kyoto has specialized since decades in luxurious tie fabrics. Known for their precision and high level craftsmanship, they make the perfect supplier for Shibumi. The hand is softer than our common repp silk, however the weave is still rich and not flimsy at all. This leads to a very elegant drape and a tie knot, that dimples very easily. The colors are vibrant and have a wonderful depth - these repps are as good as it gets.
