All of our ties are made out of 100% Pure Silk which is woven in England. The quality of the silk is exceptional. The reason we stress 100% Pure Silk is that many woven silks from Italy, which are used by many people, are known as "Weighted Silk". What they do is coat the silk with a metal to give it the impression of being heavier than it actually is. In our case, there is no weighting of the silk used. It is the real thing. To ensure our ties are the best we also hand make each tie in England.
