Kiton tie fabrics and patterns tell stories and describe the personality of the wearer. Whether it's men who choose to be daring, classic lovers or guys who are always sensitive to the latest trends, the perfect tie for everyone exists.
Our ties are light and soft: it takes a square metre of silk to make just two ties.
Each part is cut on cloth at a 45-degree angle: that’s the only way the fabric will remain perfectly straight, without curving around itself when worn.
A kaleidoscope of colours and patterns, which can be showy at times and which oscillate between classical style and the unexpected, a plain colour and the pointillism of polychromy designed to satisfy all tastes.
The art of origami
Kiton ties are forms of origami made in Naples, made from the technique of the “seven folds”, a crucial part of Neapolitan tradition. The name stems from the technique which has a visible benefit: the finished product wraps around the neck, following its form gracefully and assuredly.
The tie is made from a piece of silk folded diagonally seven times, from the sides inwards without any cutting or inner lining, each operation being performed by hand.
One single seam through the 40-ounce fabric, Kiton’s distinguishing feature, full enough that it's always impeccable.
Once tacked, the tie rests overnight to truly embrace its shape.
Each tie is finished by hand with a loose stitch that runs along the back, under the fold. It’s that thread, the ‘registro’, that ensures the tie returns to its perfect original shape, even after multiple uses
