Travelling Ties

Auction site:
Looking on this auction site for research I came across this silk tie case from the 1880s. A modern version of this is the wooden tie box, this is one of Marwood's own collection photographed below. It would be interesting to develop a combination of these two to create a workable, modern storage method which is nostalgic but not sentimental and designed to look as impressive as the wooden version but perhaps more user friendly - particularly for travelling, which if we are honest is when ties get crushed and distorted and begin to look like rags.
