Peterhouse, Cambridge has partnered with Windridge & Young to create and supply an official Peterhouse tie.


Windridge & Young are delighted to be involved with this project.  They re-mastered the college tie’s original weave, and for the first time ever have brought together the vibrancy of Peterhouse’s age-old royal blue and white in the finest dyed silks, to create a tie that is worthy of Cambridge’s oldest college.


Each tie is hand-crafted in England, supporting British craftsmanship and enterprise, from fine mulberry silk with a brushed wool interlining.  The tie is eligible to be worn by all members of Peterhouse.


The tie will be launched in July 2016, with pre-orders commencing from today.  It will be available directly to Peterhouse alumni through the Windridge and Young website at a cost of £49, or please contact Holly Ashcroft in the Development Office
