Sprezz? It's short for Sprezzatura [sprettsa'tura]. An Italian word originating from Baldassare Castiglione's 'The Book of the Courtier', in which it is defined as "a certain nonchalance, so as to conceal all art and make whatever one does or says appear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it". It is the ability of the courtier to display "an easy facility in accomplishing difficult actions which hides the conscious effort that went into them".
All our ties are made in Como, Italy (a region famed for its fine silks and tie making) and are crafted in a small family run tie makers.
