Van Sobers

Highly-textured ties of brocaded polyester were quite popular in the 70s, but I have seen very few examples of them in silk. This tie from the mysterious Van Sobers fits the bill. It is made of raw silk, which looks as if it has a matte finish but reveals a brilliant luster from certain angles, adding yet another textural dimension to the weave.
