A tie by Fenice Cravatte combines elegant design derived from either Egyptian mythology or modern themes.
The product: The idea behind Fenice Cravatte's first collection
“Fenice” stands for the mystic and ancient bird from Egyptian mythology. It is the symbol of the source of inspiration for this collection of ties. The ties are an accessory which stands out from short-lived fashion trends. The first collection incorporates elements from the long-lasting sophisticated culture of ancient Egypt. Furthermore a range of modern motifs complement Fenice Cravatte's heritage theme. To ensure the highest possible quality of the product, all ties are made in Italy.
Altogether this collection of Egyptian and modern motifs is an outstanding result: Merging light colours with pleasing repetition patterns set Fenice Cravatte apart from the competition. Every tie aspires to convey a fresh look and positive feel. Soon you can wear a tie with a modern touch as well as a story to tell! Take a look at our collection:
Michal Aidan designed the ties for Fenice Cravatte. Before joining the team she worked at the renowned fashion house of Etro. Michal draws her inspiration from the rich historical background of Egypt and created a truly innovative take on the symbols and items that are both ancient and yet so timeless in their elegance.
Creative process: The making of a pattern
Here are our three entry level Kickstarter motifs for $90 each:
The manufacturing: Quality made in Italy
Great ideas deserve an excellent implementation. Therefore, all ties are made in Italy which is the seal of excellence for all silk luxury items. In order to secure the highest possible quality of our products, Fenice Cravatte partnered with a manufacturer that is regarded amongst the global leaders in the silk industry. All ties are produced by this family owned manufacturer located on the shores of lake Como in northern Italy. They are tailored three-fold and keep up to the highest standards. No compromises are made, no short cuts are taken to make sure the designs are brought to the silk screen in the brilliance they deserve.
The aim: Why Kickstart this?
The aim of the Fenice Cravatte project is to launch this first top quality silk tie collection designed by a young and talented designer. We also want to create summer jobs for young university graduates to work on all relevant areas during the project: design, marketing and production. As the job market is very tough especially in the Mediterranean region, this project is going to show that creativity can always create opportunities, no matter how dismal the surrounding circumstances are. However, to make this first collection a reality, we need you on board.
The team: Who’s aboard Fenice Cravatte?
In order to pull off the first collection we have assembled a team of six nationalities, each with different personality and background. If you want to take a closer look at who we are, check out the biographies on the right hand side.
Risks and challenges
In order to offer you our ties with the best quality possible, yet at these competitive prices, together, we need to reach an order size of at least 500 ties. Therefore the fund-raising minimum of 30,000 Dollars has to be reached or surpassed otherwise not one more tie will be produced. Let's do it!
We have done everything humanly possible to be ready for this, as you can see the ties are real and we have produced several prototypes, bought the labels, ordered the packaging. The only risk this project has, is that we do not convince you. So please do not hesitate to ask us any questions on the ties, the project, the team and once your thirst for knowledge is satisfied you become a backer!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
