Grenadine (cloth)

Tie made with silver color silk in grenadine weave

Grenadine is a weave characterised by its light, open, gauze-like feel, and is produced on jacquard looms. Originally produced in Italy and worn as a black silk lace in France in the eighteenth century, it is now woven with silk for use in ties.

Grenadine Ties

For the most part, ties made from grenadine silk are solid in color with the visual interest being the unique weave. The solid colors make the tie versatile with other patterns and colors as well as both formal or informal jackets.

Sean Connery's wardrobe for his role as 007 featured grenadine ties in addition to standard silk ties.
