The silk knitted tie - Carlo FumeoOur silk knitted ties come from Italy, more precisely from Lombardy. Our manufacturer has been specializing in the production of the finest silk knits since 1932 and today uses historical equipment to make our knitted ties. The finish, meaning the fine sewing work, is done entirely by hand, as has always been the case. Apart from the particularly fine silk knit, the grip, which is particularly noticeable when knotting, our ties are designed to taper at the front and back. So not like the straight "stocking shape" that is common with knitted ties. The width of our ties also sets a stately standard: approx. 8.5 cm. Please also note the grosgrain ribbon attached to the inside for reinforcement.
