Sometimes It's A Matter Of Choice

Have you ever been in the supermarket aisle and seen a hundred different varieties of yoghurts in front of you that you suffer paralysis from the 'tyranny of choice' ? It can sometimes become so frightful; working out whether you want fresh berries, vanilla, light yoghurt, acidophilus, Greek, goat or cow.... that at some point you give up and walk to the next section. It is not much different when you sit down with a silk merchant.

At Le Noeud Papillon of Sydney we spend much of our time working on our own silks, but when you get over to Italy you can't help but indulge in all the archives and the hard seasonal work that cloth merchants do to present a collection of directional fabrics to some of the best known brands in the world. 

Luckily for us, we are a small brand, so nobody develops silks just for us, but occasionally we get a chance to look through the spread and pick out anything we might want to add to our existing collection.

Such was the case three weeks ago when we stumbled upon some lovely samples, part of which you can see below. The only problem for our company is, we make bow ties and very few ties, so our parameters for what we need are highly specific. Unfortunately, none of the silks below made the cut, but we thought you might appreciate their beauty anyway.

Difficulty making a decision - the thousands of silk samples available through mills in Italy
