Folds: More is Not Necessarily Merrier
Ties are made by folding fabric. Pictured here is one of our Six-Fold ties. It is produced from a single piece of silk fabric that is folded six times during construction.
Contemporary ties are folded three times. More folds equal more fabric which in turn lends greater weight to the tie, improved drape, and superior knots.
A Note on Folds
The more, the better? We don't think so. It all depends on what you're looking for. Contemporary 3-Fold ties can be equally as good as a Six or Seven-Fold tie.
Ultimately, construction and quality raw materials are the deciding factors. Seven and more fold ties are typically made with no lining due to the vast amount of fabric used. Although they are beautiful artisan pieces, they tend to be too heavy and retain wrinkles due to the lack of lining.
