Padauk wood (from Central and tropical West Africa) starts as a reddish orange or crimson colored wood that turns dark reddish/purple-brown as it ages giving it a striking color that can't help but be noticed.
Each tie is made out of solid wood - no veneers or material glued on the back. As such, each tie has a unique signature and identity with its own pattern. An adjustable elastic neck strap with a metal clasp keeps the tie tight, yet comfortable. It comes in a handcrafted box.
