Masonic ties and their background

Black ties became closely associated with Freemasonry. In recent times, tie designs do tend to vary between lodges however the black tie still holds get significance.

Masonic ties are one of the pieces of regalia used by members of the brotherhood to help create a unifying link of traditions. Dress code is particularly important when it comes to Freemasonry; this is to show that members are equal regardless of their background.

Masonic provinces organise fundraising appeals known as a Festival. Festival appeals aim to raise funds for charities through a range of events. Masonic ties are often sold as merchandise to those supporting a festival.
