Located 10 m from our Hotel Cardo, CROATA store in Split is stacked with silk cravats which take inspiration from local heritage, some using Croatian Glagolitic letters in their patterns. Croata is intimately tied up with the history of the necktie, and takes this tradition seriously. It even boasts an academic institution to research the heritage of the tie, and the story of the cravat is retold at this store, which welcomes visitors and tourists to hear it’s museum-style narration in the sale space, aside from the kind of garments they always offer to passing dignitaries, celebrities and men and women. It also boasts some limited edition cuts – only a handful in the same colour or pattern – and a very special tie made with 24-karat gold thread, rightfully placed on a pedestal in the shop window.
