Neckwear & Tie Silk

Silk Archive

Thanks to our long heritage in the silk industry, we have a unique archive, comprising over 250,000 woven designs, and incorporating the famous David Evans Archive, an extraordinary resource of over 25,000 print designs.

Both archives clearly show the ebb and flow of trends over the last hundred years, providing a fascinating record of evolution in design and colour usage. This is the embryo from which unique collections are born.

These intricate designs can always be accurately recreated in our design department in either CAD or Jacquard format, from which they are reanimated to form the basis of some of the world’s finest collections. Our archives provide exciting and unlimited scope for design inspiration – the perfect springboard from which to launch a new season.
