Ancient Madder Red Patterned Silk Tie
Ancient Madder silk ties are known primarily for their rich colours, characteristic paisley, geometric or floral patterns, and ‘chalky’ texture. These patterns are printed on twill silk fabric treated with gum arabic – a combination that remains a menswear classic among the sartorially inclined. They are distinctive to touch, let alone look at.
Ancient Madder silk printing originated in England and traditional printing has been done there ever since. This red patterned silk tie is hand-printed in Macclesfield by Adamley, which is notable for its traditional screen-printing methods.
Handmade in Italy
Our ties are made entirely by hand, the traditional way, in the South of Italy. From the cutting to sewing the slip stitch, each step requires patience and expertise. Knowledge and skills that are passed down from generation to generation. Untipped ties are even more time-consuming to produce as each blade is hand-rolled and then sewn together.
