Knitted ties since 1932
At Carlo Fumeo it still rattles and whirrs as it did in 1932, the year the traditional manufactory was founded: the impressive machine park, the traditional work processes, the very finest quality with the highest standards - nothing has changed in the production methods.
Materials and dimensions
We have our knitted ties (100% silk) made in Lombardy on historic circular knitting machines. Depending on the model, the width is approx. 8 - 8.5 cm. Most ties have hand-sewn lace at the front and back. Always reinforced on the back with grosgrain ribbon.
The revival of the knitted tie
The history of the knitted tie begins in the 1920s. First made of wool, later often made of silk. Our manufacturer near Milan bought its circular knitting machines in Germany at the beginning of the 1930s - and continues to produce the finest knitted ties then and now.
