It is fate and not necessity that gave birth to the Damiano Presta seven folds. It was 2001 and until then I had always worked in the commercial sector of the most important companies in the world of fine silks, but I was not completely satisfied with the quality of the male accessory par excellence: the tie.
Since the first age of reason, I respected my father’s work as a tailor, I deeply loved my country and I adhered to the only truly human philosophy: beauty. On a winter’s night, in front of the fireplace, in the silence of the oak embers, I read in a book by Elsa Morante this sentence: "The tie is the ultimate bridge between man and imagination, the last gap between man and barbarism."
It was a revelation, I immediately put away the book and I made a bet. I bet on the strength and ability of the women and men who live in the complicated region of Calabria, and I focused on the tenacity of their skilled hands to manufacture ties for third parties in the small medieval village of Torano Castello, namely for the top luxury labels in the world. After only a few years, thanks to the experience gained from producing the world’s finest, we accomplished the end result and absolute perfection: the Damiano Presta Seven Folds, the real triumph of Made in Italy.
And naturally as my first showroom I chose the synthesis and summation of Italic genius, I chose the Eternal City, I chose Rome.
