The three wise monkeys are a pictorial description, of the proverb "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". The monkey covering his eyes, sees no evil; the one covering his ears, hears no evil; and the one covering his mouth, speaks no evil.
The images were made famous by a 17th-century carving over a door of a famous shrine in Nikko Japan.
Handmade by the oldest silk weavers in England (weaving silk since 1720) all of our silk ties are self-tipped - meaning that whilst many other tie makers will use a cheaper silk or polyester to line the envelope on the underside of a tie, we carry on the motif and use the same fabric as the main body. Likewise our tie loops are also cut in the same fabric and are secured on all four corners. The front blade is cut on the true bias to prevent twisting and longer than is customary so that the seam is not visible when worn.
Made from pure silk.
