One of our best sellers, the warp, or background is a different colour from the silk on top, creating an interesting and very discrete two tone effect, it almost looks like a honeycomb, hence the name. This tie has more texture but still retains its softness and can be, heavens forbid - easily rolled up and put in one's pocket. Ideal with more textured shirts or suits, but just fine with plains as well. It is woven by the oldest family owned mill in England which have been weaving silk since 1720.
The ties are handmade in England by a small family firm and are self tipped. Tipping is the piece of fabric that closes the underside envelope of the tie. U D E S H I use the more costly outer fabric than substituting a cheaper silk or polyester for this purpose that most other makers would use. The tie loop is made of the same fabric as used for the body of the tie, and is sewn in to the tie and secured on all four corners. The ties are cut on the true bias and so won't twist when worn. The front blade is cut longer so the seam will not be visible when the tie is worn.
Made from pure silk.
