Alhambra Tiles Silk Tie

The rich colours and bold patterns of the tiles that inspired this design have been used for centuries in traditional Moorish architecture. The Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain was built for the last Muslim Emirs and the Nasrid Dynasty in the mid-1300s. In the 16th century, it was renovated and modified for King Charles V. As a result, European features mingle with some of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in world. Since 2001, Fox & Chave has been creating beautifully unique, hand-finished, silks inspired by the arts, history and the natural world under the auspices of managing director Jemima Haddock. Patterns are timeless, colourful, interesting and made from the highest quality silks, in a variety of proportions and weights with every piece of Fox & Chave silk finished by hand.
