Traditionally ties were typically woven in either polyester or silk. However certain types of neckwear tend to be dye printed.

Silk ties

Silk is the fabric of choice for those wanting a tie of top quality. A silk tie is only worn occasionally in order to maintain it and should be saved for special events.

If you wanted a tie that is quintessentially British, then a silk woven tie is an excellent choice.

For many decades Silk woven ties have been affiliated with clubs and regiments for many decades.

The fine silk thread offers a superior shine and soft feel and is the only choice for a luxurious accessory.

It allows the finest details to be achieved in motifs. Your motif will be jacquard woven into the fabric in order to give that classic texture and handle to the fabric.

Dye printed silk ties

If you find a woven silk tie too heavy on the neck, try a dye printed silk tie as a lighter weight alternative.

Many men prefer them because of their crisp, dry handle and lighter fabric as well as being more suitable for smaller knots.

These custom ties are made by dying plain fabrics using large screens. Vibrant colours and large areas of fine detailing can be achieved using this technique. This is the opposite to weaving the design into the fabric.

Our printed ties are popular as a corporate or promotional giveaway because they have the prestige of being 100% silk. They can also have as many colours in the design as you want, but out standard prices are based on a maximum of six colours.

Digital printed silk ties

We offer a new method of custom tie production. This method is suitable for designs with high degrees of detail and a large numbers of colours.

Our specialised printing machine is used to print designs onto the fabric. Special inks are used that do not bleed and penetrate the fabric to add depth to the designs.

Polyester ties

Polyester ties are the best bet for organisations that require  uniforms or demand formal wear for work every day. A cheaper fabric than silk, but is longer lasting when worn regularly and therefore the best choice for these types of groups.

Polyester woven ties

Polyester ties have come far in the past few years. Through improved manufacturing techniques, polyester is no longer a cheap, synthetic looking fabric it once was.

Unlike silk ties, polyester ties are more durable and therefore can be used on a regular day-to-day business, making them perfect accessories for corporate business and school ties.

Stripes and logos are woven into the fabric to provide a smarter and detailed alternative to embroidery or surface printing.

Dye printed polyester ties

If you have an organisation that requires ties for the uniform, then you can’t go wrong with our dye printed polyester ties.

Many transport drivers, guards, cabin crew and bank cashiers wear these types of tie because they are bright, easily matched to corporate colours and are very cost effective. This is especially useful when ordering in large numbers.

We offer a choice of basic fabrics, but we suggest twill as it is the most durable fabrics, which are suitable for organisations that require constant use. Similarly to the dye printed silk ties, there is no limit on colours in your design, but our prices are based on a maximum of six colours.
