Huntsman pondered where to source the finest quality fabrics and traveled the ancient provincial map, finally landing in Tango, Japan, celebrated for its rich 300-year history of weaving fine silks.
Huntsman collaborates with a silk house aligned in their fastidious approach to craftsmanship. Sourcing fabrics from a culturally rich atelier that nurtures traditional techniques, akin to Huntsman, has produced something extraordinary.
Characterised by the unique gauze pattern shapes and rich colour, each tie tipping has been numbered and marks only a hundred worldwide. Kimono ties are available to purchase in a range of four vivid blue hues, aptly chosen where they are woven, by the seas of Japan.
The effects of a richer volume of silk infused in a tie are remarkable; created by alternately weaving raw silk, one with a twist and one without. The final touches are carefully stitched by hand. The finesse of an artisan is available to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
