The Difference Between Woven and Printed Silk

by Ben Jones October 01, 2016

There are two main types of silk ties - printed and woven.  The main difference is that the fabric for a printed silk is made up of the same silk which is subsequently dyed to form the color patterns.  A woven tie, however, is made up of various colored fibers that form a pattern.

Advantage of a Patterned Silk Tie

The key advantage of a patterned silk tie is the flexibility in patterns.  A patterned tie can have very intricate patterns.

Advantage of a Woven Silk Tie

The main benefit behind a woven silk tie is the texture.  A woven silk tie has texture, whereas a printed silk tie tends to be flat.
