Grenadine ties are the best-kept secret in neckwear.
To the uninitiated it looks like a knit weave - it is a common mistake. The grenadine tie and the knit tie are more like distant cousins. While the knit tie is formed through (you guessed it) knitting, grenadine is a woven fabric produced by a loom.
Grenadine ties superficially resemble knit ties because of the particular method of weaving involved: The weft and warp are twisted around each other in such a way to produce a highly textured fabric with much visual interest.
Our Grenadines are produced by near century-old traditional wooden looms in Como, Italy by one of the oldest mills in Italy and Europe. This artisanal technique produces an authentically beautiful three-dimensional textured weave, making it very rare to come by. The intricate weave gives your tie and your overall look that tasteful visual interest we all seek.
No matter how you choose to wear it, a grenadine tie makes an excellent addition to any wardrobe. Plus, it can't hurt to go through life feeling a little bit like James Bond. Channelling that easy suaveness has got to be good for anyone's mood—and when you feel good, you better believe you look good too.
