Frequently asked questions...

 

How is our logo/motif incorporated onto the tie?

There are two types of motif tie, woven and printed. In a woven tie your design is first converted into a unique ‘jacquard’ card, which then controls the weaving process. Your motif is woven into the cloth from which the ties are made ‘Foulard' printed products are produced by dying the design using screens into fabric, which is then made into ties or ladies scarves.

 

Silk Ties or Polyester?

Polyester is popular because it looks good, handles well and being easily washable it is ideal for everyday use. Silk ties carry a certain "prestige" and are perfect for special occasions, commemoratives and when only the best will do.
