The origins of the Seven Folds
As everything that concerns it, even the story of the seven-fold tie is evocative and fascinating.
The origin of this garment is more remote than one can imagine, and dates back to the end 800/ beginning of the new century, years in which the gentlemen began wrapping it around their neck, replacing the old foulard and letting the tie become the hallmark of high society.
After a period of decline caused by its laborious manufacturing process, the seven folds, however, returned in vogue close to the Second World War due to a practice adopted by tailors.
High quality, taste and detail
In those difficult years, tailors, in order to make the most of the little fabric available, start cutting the tie into two pieces to be sewn together, folding the flaps seven times on themselves to give it a natural consistency, without adding the soul.
However, it was only the Neapolitan creativity that gave life, in the 1970s, to the modern seven folds, when this unique accessory acquired the elegance and personality that still distinguish it today.
Thanks to the use of fine fabrics and silks, tailor-made craftsmanship, new models, the seven folds has been the absolute symbol of Neapolitan elegance all over the world for over 50 years.
