Luxury Silk Ties

At the peak of the industrial revolution in 1801, Joseph-Marie Jacquard revolutionized luxury silk weaving by demonstrating his improved mechanical loom. His new design allowed for automated weaving of complex patterns as brocade, damask and matelassé. This gave unparalleled complexity and character to luxury silk fabrics. In keeping with tradition, MoMAA sources beautiful luxury silk jacquard from the world’s finest mills in Italy. These are still spun by artisans according to the highest quality standards. Our ties are completely hand sewn in Italy.
