FREITAG thinks and acts not only in cycles but also anticyclically. The company has deep-sixed the classical organizational hierarchy, including management board, and now made it obligatory for the entire workforce to wear a tie. While the tie is disappearing everywhere else from the workplace, non-casual Friday is the day when the FREITAG crew now wears the E905 CRAVATE: a bast F-ABRIC tie manufactured under totally fair and transparent conditions from fully compostable true hemp and flax.

As you'd expect, the new dress regulations at FREITAG aren't as strictly imposed as our expenses policy, mandatory composting at the factory or a rule obliging cyclists and truck drivers to say Hi to each other. In that respect, we remain absolutely unbending.

  • Made of 100% bast fibers FREITAG Broken Twill (81% linen, 19% true hemp) or FREITAG Chambray (77% linen, 23% true hemp)
  • Woven in Lombardy or in Tuscany (I), manufactured in Silesia (PL)
  • Thanks to special sewing thread and selvage 100% compostable
