Grenadine is a weave characterized by its open structure and gauze-like texture. Fermo Fossati - Italy's oldest dedicated silk mill - weaves grenadine silk on the same wooden shuttle looms they used back in the 1900s.

Grenadine ties are easy to pair, and their textured appearance is more interesting than, for example, plain twill ties. We offer two variations: Garza Grossa and Garza Fina. 'Garza Grossa' literally translates to mean 'large gauze,' while 'Garza Fina' means 'fine gauze'.

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.

Grenadine Silk

Fermo Fossati, established in 1871 in Como, Italy, is recognized as Italy's oldest silk mill and is one of only two companies in the world that still produce grenadine silk.

Grenadine is woven on the same wooden shuttle looms that were used back in the 1900s. The process involves twisting two warp yarns around the weft yarns, creating a flexible yet durable fabric. This technique results in ties that offer a unique texture and depth, making them suitable for a variety of occasions.

Each grenadine tie showcases the exceptional craftsmanship and enduring tradition of Fermo Fossati.

Handmade in Italy

Our ties are the product of generations of expertise, meticulously handcrafted in Southern Italy.

The process, involving 23 distinct steps, results in ties that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also represent the pinnacle of sartorial excellence. Each step, from cutting to sewing the slip stitch, is performed by hand with unparalleled attention to detail.

Our ties are untipped and feature hand-rolled blades, underlining the handcrafted nature of each piece.
