Apart from being a town in Northern England, Macclesfield has also given its name to a style of pattern, made famous the world over in men's ties. Small patterns with some form of little flowers are sometimes known as 'Macclesfield neats’, whereas larger patterns, called Medallions, are also representative of Macclesfield patterns. These patterns don’t necessarily mean they have been printed in Macclesfield, however we felt it was important to print our silks in the historical home of these designs.
Some of these patterns trace their origins back more than 200 years, but in relation to ties, these geometric patterns became truly fashionable in England at the beginning of the 20th century. They quickly became representative of the upper-class, and Macclesfield manufacturers started exporting them all over the world.
These classic patterns work beautifully with plain suits and shirts adding interest and colour to your outfit.
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 silk ties 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.
Each tie is hand cut, tipped and sewn together. Once the tie pieces have been joined together the tie is then pressed ready to be slipped. A woolen lining is placed into the tie and the hand slipper then pins along the tie folding the fabric onto the lining and creating an even seam along the length of the tie. Starting at the narrow end, a stretch loop is added while slipping along the tie. The stretch loop is one continuous piece of thread used to slip the tie without joins. This allows the fabric movement when worn and the stretch loop ensures more flexibility. This is unique to a handmade tie.
The ‘bar tack’ or ‘bullion’ stitch is added at each end of the tie while it is being slipped. This is also a special stitch that shows that the tie has been hand sewn. The self-loop and the label are added before the tie is checked and packed ready for delivery.
