The design is inspired from hardy small plants growing and reflecting next to Lake Tjornin in central Reykjavik, Iceland, which were surviving against all odds in the middle of a long dark winter. The design resembles a DNA helix and as my Father was a genetic scientist and a gardener, I enjoyed merging the two disciplines into this 'heritage' print. It is also a fun take on the stripy Old School Tie.
It is a deep inky blue and the pattern has a rebellious vibe to it.
Printed on 100% Irish linen.
8 cm (3.15 inch) blade, standard 152 cm (60 inch) length. Self tipped & hand finished with a colour 'gift' on the reverse of an unexpected colour bar tack.
Printing 'Botanical DNA' print on 100% Irish Linen (rather than silk) gives the tie a contemporary twist. Great with jeans and a shirt and also adds individuality when worn with a suit.
