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.
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.
