Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Colourways 6, 7 and 11 will be made. I just passed on everybody's preferences to Patrizio and he confirmed that the threshold for each of these is met. He already contacted the weaver who confirmed that all three special runs will be ready by the end of June. It will take another 2 weeks for the ties to be made and shipped out to each and every one of you.
Thanks to all of you who helped us reach the 6 meter threshold!
I am awaiting one more email address from here and two from the Dutch board. Once I have all those I will send out an email to each and every one of you copying Patrizio on that email.
In that email I will specify (i) what colourway or colourways you have committed to , and (ii) your preferred construction method.
It is at that stage still possible to 'up' the folds. Everyone who has volunteered to take a tie with more folds if that would make a run happen I will set at 3 folds standard. But as said, you can ask Patrizio directly to change to 5 or 7 folds.
As mentioned before, the prices are :
- 3 folds - EUR 100
- 5 folds - EUR 120
- 7 folds - EUR 140
This assumes a tie with hand rolled edges (unlined as Patrizio calls it, or sfoderato) like my original brown/orange tie. Should you wish standard construction, the tie will be EUR cheaper. You can specify this when finalizing your order with Patrizio.
Worldwide shipping is EUR 25 and shipping will be handled directly by Patrizio. If you include more ties in your order and order 5 or more in total shipping will be free. Payment will be made in advance directly to Patrizio, preferably via paypal.
The subscription for these three colourways is now closed. You may be able to still get in by emailing Patrizio directly, but there is no guarantee.
I will shortly make an updated spread sheet for the colourways that have not met the 6 meter threshold (yet) and post it in this thread. Should these also fill up in the next week or so, then they can also get made.
Some more good news:
If this all goes smoothly , Patrizio is willing to periodically work with us to do a special run. We will effectively be getting access to the designs from the archives of some of the best weavers in Italy and England. I am anticipating this will be 2 or 3 times per year. I would prefer doing a nice madder and/or a challis for the upcoming fall season. But I'm open to suggestions
Thanks a lot for organising the special order - I have already talked to Patrizio and things are almost settled
