Classification of tie fabric:

In general, it can be divided into yarn-dyed silk tie, printed silk tie, yarn-dyed polyester tie, and printed polyester tie (anti-silk). With the emergence of new products, some wool + silk, or 50% silk + 50% polyester silk ties have appeared, but this type of pattern is not as many as regular fabric ties. The so-called South Korean silk is actually polyester yarn. This is just the name of some domestic merchants. In foreign trade, this is 100% Polyester.


Lining classification of tie:

The lining of the tie can be roughly divided into 4 categories according to the composition, polyester silk lining, grapefruit silk lining, wool lining, wool or grapefruit + polyester silk blended. Originally, the tie should be lined with polyester, which is durable and suitable for the characteristics of the tie. The grapefruit lining and wool lining are basically used for exporting to the United States. Due to the quota system at that time, the neckties exported to the United States must use natural raw materials such as grapefruit lining and wool lining. Until last year, the quota was cancelled, but customers in the United States have continued to use the lining of grapefruit silk and wool. It feels softer. This is the characteristic of grapefruit-lined and wool-lined ties, but for domestic consumers, polyester-lined ties are actually more suitable. The grapefruit-lined and wool-lined tie can be worn less often and easily deformed. Because the consumption level in the United States is higher than in China, they usually buy a dozen of ties, and each tie will not be used more than 5 times.


Identification of tie materials:

Silk ties and polyester ties are now distinguished by touch or naked eye due to the improvement of post-processing technology. Therefore, the two methods are generally distinguished by burning. Generally, you can pull out a little fabric in the small stitches of the tie, and it will be clear when burned with a lighter. It is polyester silk that meets the flames, and it becomes silk, which is relatively simple and universal. Methods. Note that you only need to burn the thread first, and it is not good to burn out the tie!


The difference of the lining:

Generally, it can be seen with eyes. The polyester lining is basically white. Grapefruit lining, usually black or dark yellow. Wool lining, generally yellow. If you still ca n’t distinguish, you can use the same method to distinguish tie fabrics. The principle is that natural materials become carbon when they encounter fire, so natural fabrics are more environmentally friendly.
