The reason why
Once again, we went back to Como, to Paolo's studio, to develop this new tie. For sunny days, we have selected a 100% linen fabric. In terms of patterns, the famous "Prince of Wales" makes its first appearance at Atelier Particulier. A historical motif, revisited in a natural and modern material. What more ?
The origin of the Prince of Wales pattern
This traditional motif has its origins in the English settled in Scotland. The latter were not allowed to use the Tartan pattern - representative of the Scottish clans. They then developed their own motif - baptized in 1920 "Prince of Wales" because the Prince of Wales at the time (later Edward VIII) was a fan.
Funny anecdote: historically this motif was worn in the countryside and for sport only - never in the city. It was the Americans who - in the 1960s - popularized and developed its use.
Take back the fun of wearing a tie
As mentioned above, the "Prince of Wales" motif is historically a motif of the countryside and the sport - not of the city. Since then, things have changed a lot and so much the better. So you can wear our tie with everything. In a business, casual or chic look, anything is possible.
To "break" the slightly traditional side of the pattern, we opted for mottled colors with full relief and a material as supple as it is - that you won't find everywhere on ties - linen.
Paolo: 60 years of cravat-making
Paolo learned his know-how in the most famous tie-making workshops in Como. It was by practicing with seasoned craftsmen that Paolo learned how to hand-sew his first ties. Its finishes are clean and precise (tie-off and twist thread by hand). Now, Paolo ensures that his know-how endures and continues to live on in his workshop. A story that has lasted for 60 years.
Fatto a mano
In Italy, we do not laugh with the tie. Object of passion, craftsmen and ties are committed to respecting the traditions of yesteryear. Us too. The ties in our workshop are handcrafted. It is only in this way that our workshop can give birth to beautiful pieces such as our Tie. "Fatto a mano" therefore.
