All of my Sparrows ties are made from beautiful colors of silk shantung. Shantung is very similar to dupioni (used for some of my other ties) but it has a smoother, sleeker surface quality with a more refined and less raw look and hardly any slubbiness. The smooth surface allows for the printing of more finely detailed designs.

This tie is made completely from scratch, by me. (It is NOT purchased pre-sewn and then printed). It is screen printed with a silhouette design of sparrows on branches. The image is printed using an acrylic permanent textile ink and the print has been heat-set.

Measurements of the tie:

57 inches long from end to end
4 inches wide at bottom front
1.5 inches wide at opposite end

Sparrows design:
4.5 inches tall
4+ inches wide (design runs off the edges of the tie)

This tie is available in the following colors:

1. Teal shantung w/ black ink
2. Spring Green shantung w/ black ink
3. Aquamarine shantung w/ black ink

I am often able to do custom screenprint images. I have an amazing graphic designer whom I work with to create custom artwork and her prices are very affordable. Please feel free to write for more information if you are looking for something extra special!
