Charvet is an up-market tailoring firm, founded in 1838, with headquarters in the Place Vendôme, Paris.

Originally, the firm specialised in the production of shirts, but its range was extended to include suits, ties and pyjamas, both made-to-measure and ready-to-wear.

In the late 1920s, influenced by the Art Deco trends of the time, the firm produced a range of boldly-patterned, colourful ties, which were particularly popular in America.
