What is behind the production of a Banderari tailored tie?
Passion, tradition, seriousness and dedication.
The main characteristic of the Banderari ties is the completely manual processing; each piece is cut and packaged by hand and, upon request, customized and made to measure.
The fabrics, always made of natural material, are either silk from Como or wool from Biella, are selected with extreme care in very limited quantities (a maximum of 8 ties are obtained per pattern) to guarantee even more exclusivity to the product.
But how do you recognize a handmade tie?
A tailored tie is designed and cut strictly by hand.
The design is initially centered on the tip of the tie, so that the same is cut and worked in perfect bias: a tie cut on the bias does not twist and this valuable, non-random result makes the tie stay perfectly at the suspension test lead, without rotating or bending on itself on its vertical axis.
A handmade tie is kept closed by a single, continuous, whole seam. This thread has no knot: in fact, it starts from the trailing edge and goes directly to the blade!
The perfect handmade tie has the “friction”, that is a leftover seam thread left free which takes on the appearance of a ring or a pendulous cotton thread. It is located on the back of the pigtail, usually semi-hidden behind the fabric flap.
The daily use of a tie generates internal stresses that dissipate on the seam: the “friction” discharges these efforts through its slow recall into the fabrics, reducing itself until it disappears completely.
Whether in silk or wool, as well as in the many fabrics that are recently being used, a precious tie must always give a pleasant experience of the senses.
