“He who works with their hands is a worker. He who works with their hands and mind is an artisan. He who works with their hands, mind and there heart is an artist.”
(San Francesco d’Assisi)
It is the first real processing phase for the creation of a tie, made strictly by hand through the use of plaster and the classic tailor's scissors. The skill in this phase consists in cutting the fabric in the right direction following the patterns of the same, ie in "drittofilo". A cut made by art, in "drittofilo" and "sbieco" will allow the finished product to fall well without twisting and has no defect of wearability.
A fundamental phase for the creation of lined ties, it is also called "capping" and consists in inserting a core strictly in brushed wool. The lined tie has the right volume and a perfect consistency of the knot.
The Clutch Wire
The friction cord of the tie is one of the elements that is part
of the most ancient Neapolitan sartorial tradition. It is a single thread inserted by hand inside the tie, starting from the "rafter" up to the "blade". It is used to spread the folds of silk after using the tie.
The "closure" of the tie, made exclusively by hand, is the seal that identifies the craftsmanship of the production.
