Your luxurious tie is cut in three pieces, at the 45 ° angle of the fabric, to be folded by hand like an origami, with a core (the interlining) inside, which will give your Tie its volume.
The thread that gathers your tie is very important. Because it is he who keeps your tie and the most used yarn, to assemble the central seam of your tie, is strong and good quality, the more your tie will last in time, while keeping its elasticity and ensuring it robustness.

Looking at a tie, you can always look at the thread and you can look at the dot density. The higher the dot density, the better!

The Self-Tipping Finish of a Handmade Tie is the fabric that is sewn to the back of the tie tip and that uses the same fabric as the tie itself.
It is an ultimate guarantee of excellence of a tie. For if you pay special attention to the tip, it implies that one pays the same attention to the interlacing (the soul of the tie) which will give it its volume but also will help it to keep its shape and Its elasticity.

A luxurious handmade tie does not wash in a machine.
