Creating a Seven Folds

The seven folds takes its name from its manufacturing technique: the precious silk is folded seven times on itself, to give it thickness and consistency, without adding other padding. The result is a more solid tiethat ensures a seal closer to the body, a feeling of decorum, composure, absolute elegance.

What makes it particularly precious is not only the greater amount of fabric used, about double that required for a classic tie, but also the complex tailoring method.

The creative process of a seven-fold is particularly laborious, within the reach of only the most experienced tailors, consisting of as many phases as those from which it takes its name:

  • Fabric cutting: strictly by hand, the cut scrupulously follows the direction of the design.

  • Hooding: in this delicate phase, treated centimeter by centimeter, the fabric is sewn inside (back) of the tie.

  • Ironing: at low temperature to remove any folds in the fabric following hooding.

  • Tapping: one of the most complex moments during which the folds and internal consistency of the tie are created one by one, to ensure tightness and adherence to the body.

  • Sewing: the tie is closed, strictly by hand and with delicate steps, ensuring correct vertical alignment.

  • Embroidery: at the end of the initial seam, an eyelet is embroidered with a thicker thread, a symptom of the quality and craftsmanship of the accessory.

  • Control: the creative process ends with a scrupulous check to identify any anomalies in the fabric or seams, before proceeding with the packaging.

    These complex operations are carried out exclusively by hand, in fact there is no machinery capable of performing them, as proof of the value and exclusivity of this unique garment.
