One of the most peculiarly enjoyable things to do in Como is to stand around a factory lined with roaring warps and wefts busily ratt-tat-tatting silks until they come out the other side as fabric that you instantly recognise as your tie silks that you've come to love. Each machine has roughly 15,000 needles which sit on top of the warp threads to stop the machine should one warp thread break. They go 24 hours a day from my understanding, weaving silk at roughly the rate of one metre per hour. I do love seeing the machinations of the fashion industry. It is so far removed from the catwalks of London and Paris. It's so real, so visceral and the people are so genuinely passionate about creating the best of silks.
