New ties highlight surface effects


Makers are creating textural interest through jacquard, wool and knitted designs.




  • Patterned models in cool hues: Makers are veering away from solid-colored designs and releasing striped, dotted and paisley ties. Other geometric motifs are also used. The popular background colors are blue, green and purple.
  • Unusual textures: Companies are exploring the use of wool and knitted silk, polyester and cotton. Unlike woven styles, these fabrics generally have a slightly duller finish and coarser hand. Wool is either pure or blended with 30 percent silk. Plain and ornamented variants are available.
  • Medium widths prevalent: Suppliers offer items between 5 and 11cm wide to suit varying tastes and user sizes. Neckwear measuring 8.5 to 9cm across, however, are the mainstream.
  • Price forecast: Silk rates increased 50 percent YoY, reaching a record high of $63,450 per ton in July 2011. Along with the appreciation of the yuan, this development will push up quotes 5 percent in the next six months.
  • Sales projection: With demand from the US and Europe still weak, the industry expects overseas revenue to be flat in 2012.
