Hand-cut and hand-sewn grenadine tie with a triple diagonal stripe
Made with Grenadine fabric which is traditionally made in Macclesfield, England. Grenadine is made on traditional narrow looms and is incredibly labour intensive and costly to weave due to the structure of the fabric, and as a result has to be cut by hand. The ties are then handmade in full by a small maker in Kent England, with the fabric cut by hand, hand folded and then hand sewn.
