More on Grenadines
Even if you haven't heard of a grenadine tie before, you've likely seen one—and possibly mistaken it for a knit tie. It's 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.
There are two types of Grenadines: garza grossa and garza fina. Garza grossa is a loose weave while garza fina is much finer. The tighter weave makes for a more resilient tie that won't easily get snagged and damaged. All Aklasu grenadine ties are garza fina, further ensuring your tie is made to last.
Grenadines are a fairly weighty fabric. It's best to stick to simple knots. A Four-in-Hand or a double Four-in-Hand still create large, well-defined knots that pair nicely with your common semi-spread collar.
Grenadine ties are classic and timeless. Grenadines are highly sought after because of their refined texture, elegant simplicity and versatility. Discover more about Grenadine Ties.
