Bigi ties originated in Viale Gian Galeazzo in Milan, in a small workshop, the heart of a classical period building, which reflects the elegance and sophistication of the products created by the company. A landmark building located along a perimeter that links all the old city gates and one that is typical of the Milan that is so loved by the Milanese and by those foreigners who are sensitive to hidden architectural treasures. That Milan that, today, is currently known as a fashion capital, that dictates style, and guards the secret of good taste.Each Year, West Point Manufattura Cravatte Srl produces thousands of handmade ties, exporting its “Made in Italy” excellence worldwide, while still maintaining a traditional corporate structure, which is also agile and streamlined. Following the business model establishing by its founder, all of the tie manufacturing stages are carried out by qualified employees who work in-house or at home.
The image of Bigi Cravatte Milano grew and transformed throughout history. Remaining faithful to the values that have made it unique, it proposes products and solutions capable of meeting the changing demands of its customers.
The knowledge that only a family business can convey and translate effectively, along with the precision and accuracy of workmanship that is still based on the experience of skilled, tireless hands, constitutes a priceless treasure that is enriched every day through continuous technological research.
The history of expertise and passion recounted by the ties Bigi creates is not only popular in Italy. Over the past two decades, it has mostly captured the Asian market, particularly Japan, which is extremely sensitive to the values that “Made in Italy” craftsmanship expresses, and where the ties are distributed with the name: stefanobigi.
The stefanobigi brand, as support to Bigi Cravatte Milano and distributed, as mentioned, in Japan and Korea, was necessary for marketing purposes. Yet, behind the two brands hide the same expert hands that, in the laboratory of Porta Ticinese, create the prized ties.
Much of the turnover created by West Point Manifattura Cravatte Srl, Italy’s pride worldwide, is in fact manufactured abroad: mainly Japan, but also the United States, Korea, and Europe. Sophisticated products that are capable of meeting the desires of even the most demanding customers.
