This tie was made by Doug Kite, featuring a black and tan diamond pattern with a triangular end, using an 'over one-under two' method. The tie is made from kangaroo hide and has a plaited collar strap with adjustable buckle. The edge of the tie has been trimmed. The collection of ties that Doug has made are another example of his innovative, mathematical and creative flair in designing plaited items that have no known precedent.
