Handmade men’s bow ties, behind the scenes of Marzù creations
The high quality of a product can be seen from the first glance and Marzù men’s bow ties are an example of how striking the use of precious materials can be. The latter are distinguished by a unique aesthetic and durability over time, thus ensuring durability. In the case of Marzù men’s bow ties, these materials are silk, from the most famous silk district in Italy, ebony and olive woods, both known for their unique characteristics, and finally Murano glass. Buying a silk bow tie, as well as a wooden one, will therefore be a guarantee in terms of elegance, always if we adopt simple precautions. Let’s discover together the materials that make up the wooden bow ties, in wood and Murano glass and in silk.
Silk: the fabric par excellence for the men’s bow tie
As is known, the country associated with silk is China, where this fabric has been produced for thousands of years. Italy is also known internationally for the manufacture of silk fabrics and more precisely is the Como area in Lombardy. Here, for more than four hundred years, the silk that the Marzù craftsmen use for the creation of men’s bow ties has been produced. Como silk is appreciated all over the world especially for the production of the jacquard fabric, widely used in clothing and beyond. Our silk bow ties are created using only a high quality material, produced and processed in Italy. Specifically, the silk chosen by our brand is faille, a type of processing that is slightly more rigid, recognizable thanks to the ribbed reliefs present in the weave, almost imperceptible. Due to its characteristics, the silk faille has made it possible to create men’s bow ties that stand by themselves, always remaining supported.
Wood: an unusual material for men’s bow ties
Wood is a noble material, used in all the cultures of the world since prehistoric times to produce an infinite variety of objects. The precious ebony, an essence native to Central Africa, imported into Europe by the Dutch and recognized as precious by virtue of its aesthetic qualities, one above all the intensity of color, is used to make the men’s bow ties in Marzù wood. The latter represents the most appreciated feature of ebony, so much so that in the Italian language it is used as a synonym of black. Marzù ebony bow ties for men are characterized by a stylized shape well highlighted by the intense coloring of this exclusive wood. Next to ebony there is olive wood, different in color and aesthetic characteristics, but equally appreciated because of the typical dark veins. If a man’s bow tie in ebony is velvety to the touch, the one in olive wood makes each bow tie even more different from the other, therefore unique.
Murano glass: the art of master glassmakers for a special men’s bow tie
Last, but certainly not least, is Murano glass, one of the ambassadors of Made in Italy craftsmanship throughout the world. Murano glass is so called because it is produced and processed entirely in Murano, an island in the Venetian lagoon. The Marzù style meets Murano glass in men’s bow ties Gioiello: in the Duca Gioiello and Duca Nodo Gioiello models, Murano glass meets silk faille, creating a combination of undeniable elegance. Murano glass is a completely different effect in combination with fine woods: in the Limpero Gioiello model, the men’s bow tie reaches the highest degree of elegance.
