Limited Editions - Why We Do Them....


We run so many of our limited edition silks at a loss when you consider the cost of the design set up fees and then amortise them over the number of bows we will run in each silk. But they are so much a part of the personality of our brand. Each limited edition silk has a story and a reason for being. Whether it be a design such as memento mori that pays homage to the namesake art form, the Alhambra which drew from our investigations into geometric repeats, the Eugene, merely a change in spots from circles to rounded rectangles, the Amanda, a set of hearts tattooed on a young man's arm which inspired me to create a silk, Gaudi's Family, those wonderful stain glass windows in the Sagrada Familia, Il Gattorpardo, a tile on the floor of the manor house in the film adaptation of Lampedusa's masterpiece, Tanaka, a pavement or coy scale, Mio Capitaine, paying homage to my family's merchant sailing roots or Marriage, the tongue in cheek poke at the institution that it is until death do us part. When you buy our limited editions, you purchase more than a silk bow tie. You purchase a story, small or tall.
