We believe anyone can wear the smartest clothes; what sets a man apart is an elegant necktie. We live to be set apart. This drives our passion to create fantastic neckties.

We put in a lot of time and love into crafting our designs. The rich heritage and unrivaled quality of manufacturing in England country makes us proud to be producing Reddendi neckties here.

Everything in the world has a purpose. Our purpose at Reddendi is using part of our profits to support education. We know that educating children is key to achieving sustainable change. This can happen one step at a time.

We are working on several other innovative designs across product ranges (such as a women's luxury bracelet line). We can't wait to roll the new products out, as each product will support our ethos of giving back to society in some way. With your support, we can make this dream a reality.

ONE TIE

Each tie is handmade in England from the highest quality pure silk. We are proud to have our products made in England and are very happy to be supporting local British manufacturing.

All our silk is sourced from China to ensure the very highest quality.

We created the designs ourselves, refining the patterns you see today over a nine-month period (with countless designs that didn’t make the initial range). The patterns are modern and sophisticated, with closer inspection revealing the underlying meaning and purpose behind the designs.

No corner has been cut in designing, developing or manufacturing our meaningful and unique designs. We hope you love these ties as much as we do!

ONE CHILD

Why does Reddendi donate part of its profits to education? Education is the key lever to drive sustainable positive change globally. We believe that many of the geopolitical issues that we face in the 21st century can be addressed through education. One example, of many, is that conflict has been shown to be twice as likely in countries with high levels of education inequality. We personally have been lucky enough to have had fantastic opportunities to learn and it is important to give future generations the same chance.

DONATIONS

Please note that, as per the Kickstarter rules, we will only donate future profits to help educate children in India and Africa. No Kickstarter funds will be donated directly to charity.

About us

Neeraj and I are final year MBA students at London Business School. We have both been lucky enough to have great opportunities to learn throughout our lives and think it is really important that everyone gets the same chance. We have also visited parts of the world where the access to education is unfortunately very limited.This inspired us to set up Reddendi. The whole Reddendi ethos is to ensure that for each product we sell an extra child gets further access to education.

We are also passionate about creating a luxury fashion brand manufacturing fantastic quality British manufactured goods. We love being able to help protect and retain, in our own small way, traditional British manufacturing. British made is still a hallmark of quality and we are delighted to stand by the quality of our British made products.

We are starting the Reddendi journey with the range of ties you can see above. But we are super excited about all the other products, for both men and women, that our in house designers have in the pipeline; all of which will give back to education in their own unique way.

Thank you so much for your help in supporting us with our first step in this exciting journey.

All the best

Stefan and Neeraj

KICKSTARTER TIMELINE

Q&A

What will you do with the money you raise?

Once we reach our funding goal we will manufacture your ties and ship them to you as quickly as possible. We are excited about the future and hope to bring out further designs as well as different product lines and importantly continue to help more children around the world.

When will we get our neckties?

The mill is ready to produce the Reddendi ties and as soon as the campaign ends they will get started. Once we receive the funds we expect to have the ties delivered to you within 2 months. But we will do everything we can to try to get you the ties sooner!

Where will you be selling your neckties after Kickstarter?

We will primarily be selling our ties online at www.reddendi.com.

International shipping?

Reddendi is happy to ship anywhere in the world. Orders outside the UK have a postage charge that varies depending on where our ties are being sent.

If you are outside the EU. In some countries, customs duties may be applied to shipments. We cannot determine the customs duties required for every country. Our backers who are purchasing Reddendi ties from outside the EU should consider that there might be a customs charge levied by their jurisdiction. We don't think this should be a big problem but you should be aware of it.

Don't forget there is free delivery inside the UK if you have friends or family who are based in the UK.

What size are the ties?

The ties are the standard size of 8.5cm blade width and 148cm in length.

How do I wash my Reddendi Tie?

All of our ties are made from high quality silk and should only be dry-cleaned.

Why am I asked for my contact details?

We would like to provide you with updates, if you are happy for us to,  as to how you have helped ‘give back’ to education. We obviously won't share your information with anyone.

What if I have any problem with the Ties?

The ties have been manufactured to the highest possible standards. If you have any problem with the products at all, please contact us. We stand behind our product completely and will be happy to help.

Any other questions?

We would be delighted to answer any questions you have at info@reddendi.com  

Risks and challenges

We are already working with one of the best manufacturers in UK. We are in constant touch with them and have visited their factories to cross check their capabilities. We have the final samples ready and it is very much as per our requirements. At this point we just need to execute the final order.

We intend to deliver the Reddendi Ties by the end of July or early August which gives us ample time to meet our commitments. We will be in constant touch with the manufacturers. Manufacturing in England allows us to visit the factory regularly. We will keep our backers posted with our progress during the production and delivery process.
