I am sometimes amazed at the price of ties. If it was made in Italy, it probably was expensive. A Gucci can sell for $200. Here is one from JZ Gallery Collection made with silk and cotton. It doesn't look like much but the price tag is still attached - $115! I'm not sure what the Italian Mogador represents. As far as I can tell, Mogador is the former name (until 1956) of Essaouira in Morroco.
