Franz GL Ties are hand sewn from the highest quality natural fabrics. We use silk, linen and wool produced in Italy. The interlinings are either wool, double wool or cotton. The linings are silk or wool from Italy or the Ties are self-tipped. The main seam of the ties is hand-sewn using a single thick silk thread ended on one side with characteristic loop. It gives the Tie flexibility nad helps the Tie come back to its original shape.
