The 7-fold ties take their name from their special and traditional manufacturing method. They are made from a large piece of silk, folded 7 times on itself to give the tie its structure and its thickness.
It is therefore an expensive construction that requires 2 to 3 times more silk than a classic tie (3 plies), but to the touch is definitely incomparable, which makes them very popular for lovers of beautiful ties.
I wanted to create a very special piece to remember my grandmother.
Faced with its success, I have since then never stopped making them.
Because they are rare and very difficult to find.
They require a very special know-how.
7-fold ties require a real traditional know-how.
Today, there are only about ten of us left in the world to do them.
And it really motivated me.
Alike many of my pieces I like to propose what is no longer done, or almost...
My 7-fold ties bridge the gap between traditional manufacturing and contemporary fabric assembly.
You will notice that I didn't hesitate to add small sartorial details like loop thread or saddle stitching.
I just wanted to do a wink to hand work of saddlers in leather goods by making this type of seams.
To do this, we use two needles fixed on the ends of the same yarn that we pass alternately above and below at each point.
On our ties, the stitches are every 2 and 3 mm.
Put a small touch of color, enjoy the product, make it unique.
I love details that don't show up at first glance.
When the accessory becomes essential.
"Elegance is what you can't see".
At first glance, it looks like a normal tie...
When you turn it over, you discover this work of perfection.
This is what I find exciting.
To make a 7-fold tie, we use 2 times more material and we put 2 times more time than a normal tie (3-fold tie) could require.
This tie is therefore very greedy, both in terms of material and manufacturing time.
It is therefore normal that it has a cost higher than a 3-fold tie.
The saddle stitch ending with a travetto (closure reinforcement) and the buckle comfort thread, so that the fabric returns to its place after the port.
