About DAKINE ties

DAKINE ties were first painted when I realized it was one of the ways a man wearing a suit could express himself. So my first tie I hand sewed and painted,I use jaquard textile paint,then heatset at a very high temperature to cure the paint. Until recently I had only been creating a dozen ties each year. Each tie is hand painted on 100% silk.
