Our simple, yet stylish, solid neckties arose from a pragmatic, minimalist push in fashion that has driven the need for utility. However, the jacquard silk we use is anything but ordinary. The unrefined fabric retains its intricate interlacing characteristics, which exhibits a subtle texture to make every tie unique and highlights the rich craft of traditionally handmade Thai silk.
Authentic Thai Silk
Tieland uses silk that has been granted the Royal Peacock seal of authenticity. The Royal Peacock was created by Her Majesty of the Kingdom of Thailand to protect the reputation of Thai silk from imitation fabrics. It has become the certification trademark of Thai silk standards under the Queen Sirikit Department of Sericulture, which establishes a strict quality control program for Thai silk and protects the health, safety, and well-being of silk producers. Neckties from Tieland are made from genuine, high-quality materials with the interests of the Thai silk industry and people behind the fabric assured.
Silk is woven into the fabric of society in Thailand’s rural regions. The farming of silk, known as sericulture, has been practiced—and perfected—for many generations in villages across the country that rely on the industry for their livelihoods. The silk threads woven to form the fabric used by Tieland are sourced exclusively from these communities, which helps sustain their heritage.
The luxury of Thai silk has its origins in royalty and rarity. The use of silk in Siam, known today as Thailand, was initially reserved for the royal family and worn on ceremonious occasions. Most silk today is mass-produced and exported from China, while traditionally handcrafted silk from Thailand is rare in comparison. It accounts for less than one percent of silk on the global market.
