During the era that for a man to ger cloths, he had to visit a tailor, ties also needed to be made by hand. During that era, for a tie to be made required one meter of fabric, which was folded on the bias of its weave, in order to create unlined ties.

Choose Unlined Ties

The feeling is unique, similar to its construction. Compared to factory ties, where thick synthetic interlining prevails, handmade unlined ties maintain the natural drape of the fabric, the perfect blade shape, the light feeling and the authenticity of a quality tie made just for you.

The construction of unlined ties allows for perfect knots, helps the neck to feel free, giving it a kiss of silk, compared to the common warm scarf feeling ties. Wearing unlined ties, you will forget that you are even wearing anything around your neck.

The unique construction of unlined ties, requires fabrics of very high quality. Synthetic, polyester or other hybrid facrics donot belong in hand made tie construction. The creation of unlined ties requires 100% hand made technique, one meter long fabric and 4 hours of delicate hand work. The result always justifies the cost of such ties.
