Fine Tailoring Neckties & Accesories
Dalannays is the last name of my mother , who taught me to sew at 10 years old with her 70’s “Singer Facilita” machine. I studied graphic design and after working nearly 12 years in digital media, I decided to take seriously this self-taught hobby that I cultivated for years, creating my own brand.
Since childhood I’ve been fascinated with the art of Tailoring , when I saw my father’s shirts , his ties, suits and hats . The generation gap of nearly four decades that I have with my father connected me with an “old reality” that today we almost don’t see, from the time when men went to the tailor of his confidence to make his suits, choosing the fabrics, talking every detail, reveling themselves with a perfect-fit piece of clothing, so lasting!
We live in a world that promotes too much the “disposable” things, and that’s where I think the old crafts have something valuable to teach. That’s why I decided to make my accessories under the standards of classic tailoring , carried to the needs of modern clothing with organic and high quality raw materials.
