Paisley is an instantly recognisable pattern, most commonly through incorporating the 'twisted teardrop' in the design. The pattern itself originates from Persia (modern day Iran) around 221 AD, though the well known name comes from the West Scotland town of Paisley, while the traditional name of ‘Boteh Jehge’ is still used in Iran today. The design can be found on artwork, fabric, rugs and other home decorations. It was created to represent the Cyprus Tree, which is a symbol of life of eternity for the Zoroastrianism religion.
Paisley became incredibly popular in India and Asia in the 1500s to the late 1700s during the Moghul Period. In the 1600s, the pattern started to appear on shawls, and its popularity spread throughout the West when the East India Company started importing the products into Europe. When manufacturing shifted to Europe in the 1800’s, the primary weavers and producers for these shawls were based in the town of Paisley, which became synonymous with the ancient religious patterns. Eventually ‘Paisley’ became the adopted western name for the pattern, which went on to become a classic design across many menswear products and accessories.
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our pocket squares are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
The art of hand rolling pocket squares is a unique craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each scarf its own unique character, finish and feel. To create the finest rolled hems, the edge of the silk or cotton pocket square must be softy turned over with a handheld needle and then small stitches are inserted approximately one half to one centimetre apart around the edge, creating a supple yet prominent border.
It’s absolutely the best way to finish a pocket square for a variety of reasons but the key ones are for both visual effect and structure. Rolling by hand is the only way to get a really nice clean plump finish on the edge and this gives a really nice depth to the edges. It’s a more expensive process than machine rolling but by using a machine you’re often left with a flat edge and you don’t get the same luxurious feel. On top of this, the rolled edges add a lot more structure to your pocket square.
"I was eyeing the Rampley pocket squares for quite a while and was thinking that the idea of turning classic art into pocket squares was quite brilliant and interesting.
When I finally had the chance to see the products in person I was blown away by the rich details in the prints. What you don't realise from the pictures is that the print is actually incredibly detailed even on the back of the square. This results in making it much easier to…" click to read full review.
"My line of work gives me a pretty unique chance of studying finely crafted clothing and accessories and if pressed I can roll a decent hand rolled edge myself. Rampley & Co’s products are as good as it gets where handwork is considered. The pocket squares I own so far are on the same level, or better than, pocket squares that usually retail for several times the price that Rampley & Co charge. The silk is finely woven and neither too thick to become bulky in ones pocket, nor is it..." click to read full review.
