Taken from the former insignia of the British Royal Airforce base in Salalah, Oman, this motif is particularly popular with our clients who conduct business in the Middle East. The wide repeat of the design also allows the richness of our exclusive satin ground to shine through.
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.
