The legend narrates that silk was discovered by the beautiful Chinese empress Lei-Tsu. Some cocoons dropped in her bowl while she was drinking tea in a garden. Removing them, she saw the fine and longest strings of silk and by that, she had the genial intuition to use it as yarn. Its own incredible features make silk the elected material for ties.
The 3-fold tie is the most common one. Although it is a basic construction, it often represents the best choice. Recommended in the warm season for instance or with the heaviest fabrics that would turn out to be too hefty with more well-structured models.
In 1801 J.M. Jacquard invented the mechanical loom which allowed the automated weaving of complex patterns that gives unparalleled complexity and a pleasing thickness to fabrics. The design is obtained crossing different coloured threads. Our beautiful jacquard silks are provided by the world’s finest mills in Italy.
