    Meet our local hosts at a luxury tailor shop in Cernobbio for a totally private experience for you.

    “Her Majesty” the silk tie is the fashion accessory that best represents the creativity and craftsmanship of the Como silk district.

    Our artisans will introduce you to its history and to its strong bond with Como, plus an expert lady artisan will show you how it is handmade.

    We will also have some fun with a practical tutorial of 3 different classic knots.

    During the experience you will also be shown a collection of exclusive MADE IN COMO silk ties, scarves and twillies. If asked in advance, we can also surprise you with an exclusive personalisation (embroidered initials).
