A silk tie with allover bees and dots pattern. A symbol first used by Gucci in the '70s, the bee was reintroduced by Alessandro Michele. In Europe, bees are associated with nobility and often appear in family crests, tapestries and paintings. Navy silk with red bees and dots pattern. W7cm x L146cm. 100% silk. Made in Italy. The unparalleled craftsmanship of Gucci ties dates back to the 1960s. Our ties are constructed by hand using a process that takes about 30 minutes for each individual piece. Every step in the process-from selecting the highest quality fabrics, to the exclusivity of our patterns, weaving and printing techniques, cutting and assembly-is a testament to the exceptional workmanship that goes into the making of each Gucci tie.
