Tundra: Canadian Coogi

Tundra of Canada has been making clothing for over 70 years, but I'm not sure how long they've been making Coogi-style sweaters. From what I have seen, they're every bit as good. Also like Coogi, Tundra has made some neckties as well, mostly with a printed design, but some, like this, with a phantasmagorical weave of a whole rainbow of silk threads, somehow stitched and sewn into a three-dimensional, almost topographical, texture. This is hands-down the most incredible fabric I own. The only reason this tie is going to show up on ebay in the near future is that I have another one just like it, which I will be keeping.
