Volare Collection Ties
Postiglione is a small town that clings to the side of a mountain in Southern Italy , with a population of 2600 people . It's a gorgeous little place, and on a clear day, you can see the coast, and the city of Salerno, some 20 miles away. If the weather is really clear, you can see the island of Capri, more than 45 miles away. In this town, some of the finest neckties in the world are made. All by hand, one by one. These are the wonderful ties of the Volare collection .
40 years ago, Rosanna and Luigi Monaco started a small company in Milan. Rosanna was the Master Tailor, and her husband took care of business aspects. Luigi really missed his native Postiglione, and after a few years, the growing family moved south, back to the small mountain town where he grew up. Many years later, Rosanna and Luigi are fortunate to have 3 of their sons, Daniele, Diego, and Ivan, working with them - the Monaco company is a real family business.
To make a necktie all by hand is a very time-consuming task: a full half metre of the finest silk from Como is cut, folded and stitched by hand, every step painstakingly performed by one of our 16 master tailors. . Every Volare tie uses only the finest vowen Jacquard designs, which are created by the our design staff in Como - the world's "Silk Capitol".
The silk for Volare neckties gets special treatment all throughout the manufacturing process, ending with a final wash with French "Savon de Marseille", or Marseille Soap. This is why all Volare ties have that extra lustre and brilliance that other ties lack. All Volare neckties feature handcrafted and luxurious details, such as the pure virgin wool lining, the brand label made by satin woven silk, the visible slip-stitch and the hand-made bar tack. The tipping is also made of finest silk, with colour picture of Postiglione’s view. The master tailors who make these ties have every reason to be proud of their work - and they are: The volare neckties are available in the finest boutiques in Italy and in many countries around the world.
