Dreaming of Monday – Handmade Ties From Sweden

I’ve always found it inspiring with local entrepreneurs and talented, creative and driven individuals. I also love ties, so when I heard from a good friend of mine about Dreaming of Monday, I knew I had to meet the master mind behind it all.

Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with Dreaming Of Monday, that kindly offered me one of their ties to try out and give honest feedback on.

ABOUT
Dreaming of Monday makes premium accessories handmade in Sweden. They specialize in handcrafted ties, cravats and pocket squares, which are made with their own style of design, that they call “everyday elegance”. Their style and techniques are characterised by striping the accessory of unnecessary additives, such as the interlining, and adding handmade elements, like hand rolled edges, giving the final product a lighter feel and a better drape.

THE VISION

“With Dreaming of Monday we aim to reshape the image of accessories from being strict and formal, to something more suitable for casual everyday use. Our vision is to create a platform for premium accessories, a platform filled with products made for everyone.”

THE ATELIER
They have a small atelier just outside of my home town Malmö, were they design and produce all of their accessories. They use premium materials such as wool, silk and linen, which are bought from the leading manufactures in Europe.

NEWS
Recently Dreaming of Monday launched their remade website where they have added several new styles to the collection. One of their latest additions is a 9cm version of their ties. I received one to try and must say that I really like it!

The 9cm width and Unlined 6-fold construction makes a quite nice knot using a simple four-in-hand – read my previous post on “tie width” by clicking on the image above.

If you want to learn more about their products I would recommend visiting their website and especially their journal where they go more into detail about the construction, materials, techniques etc.
