They are our greatest love and in this quality not to be find somewhere else. They are made either on very modern circular knitting machines or on Cotton machines, which have been invented by William Cotton (1817 – 1887), in the first place to knit ladies stockings. They are knitted fullly fashioned, which means that the product is knitted in the ultimate shape by increasing and decreasing the width of the knitted fabric. Then they are pulled on to wooden frames, which have exactly the shape of a tie and will stay there for approx. 24 hours. This gives them their final shape and avoids the ironing, which always means an unwanted loss of flexibility. This very special way of production influences the solidity of the tie in such a way, that they will lengthen not more than about 5% even after wearing them for years.
Should it be necessary they could even be used to tow a car.
Each tie weighs between 60 – 80 grams pure silk and also this weigh creates this significant crie de soie , for which our knit ties are famous.They do not only look cool, but additionally give this certain something, which is hard to define.
