Printing Motif Ties
For those of you unfamiliar with the business of cravatology (design motifs), it is an incredibly involved process, with the intricate patterns requiring many man hours of work. Apprentices undertake many years of apprenticeship to be able to master the art of screen printing on silk. Firstly, the artisans have to separate the individual colours and then one by one, they use ‘screens’ to cover and uncover the specific areas of the design to be printed. Each colour of ink has to be separately applied to the silk; It has been likened to doing a jigsaw puzzle in reverse.
