The homeland of the First Tie
Did you know that the necktie originates from the Croats?
THE STORY OF THE TIE – A STORY ABOUT LOVE
Welcome to Croatia, country of an exceptional coast, beautiful islands and fascinating stories that will leave immense impression on you. We offer you a unique story, the story of the tie.
Did you know that the tie, a universal symbol of sophistication and culture, originates from the Croats?
As a fashion accessory, the Croats spread it throughout Europe in the
17th century. At the beginning, the Croatian soldiers wore a scarf round the neck. The scarf was named after them - the cravat
(the tie) - and it was their recognizable trait. Therefore, in the year of 1667 a separate regiment was formed. It was named
the «Royal Cravates», after the Croats.
When the thirty-year war (1618-1648) was raging in Europe, Croatian soldiers were also drawn into
this tragedy. Under the leadership of their Vice-Roys (Croatian ban) they arrived as far as Paris.
As all the great stories, this is a story about love. Croatian folk tradition can be our source to find out the reason why they put scarves. Fiancées gave their fiancés scarves as token of mutual fidelity, especially in crucial moments of their lives.
We hope this story will become a constant reminder of our beautiful country and one of her most recognizable symbols - the cravat.
