Ties

EDSOR Berlin has partnered with The European Azerbaijan Society to produce an exclusive collection of designer accessories inspired by the mystical land and culture of one of Azerbaijan’s most famous regions – Karabakh.

EDSOR Berlin

Founded in 1909, the Kronen label has established itself as one of Berlin’s leading tie specialists. Using only the finest Italian silks, the brand adheres to the highest quality standards to continually ensure the classic and elegant signature style of its handmade accessories.

The company celebrated its first success as the purveyor to the court of Wilhelm II, and gained international recognition as early as the Golden 20s. Heavily influenced by the British sense of style, the Kronen label adopted the name EDSOR in 1954 in reference to the sophistication of eternal British style icon EDward WindSOR. The crown – used as the label’s emblem since 1912 – continues to serve as the brand’s logo.

The EDSOR manufactory is located in Berlin’s vibrant Kreuzberg district, where the aesthetic concepts of style, grace and beauty are not only produced, but also lived daily. EDSOR’s exclusive biannual collections include ties, bows, pocket squares, hand lined scarves and shawls, cashmere scarves, ascots, cummerbunds and tailor-made dressing gowns.

As the 5th generation head of EDSOR, Jan-Henrik M. Scheper-Stuke has been the face of the company since 2010. With his distinct EDSOR style, he epitomises both modern and timeless elegance, which keeps the company’s quality, authenticity and tradition alive.

The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS)

The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) is a pan-European organisation dedicated to promoting Azerbaijani culture, business and public affairs to international audiences. TEAS is also actively involved in helping create a sense of community amongst expatriate Azerbaijanis.

TEAS was launched in November 2008, having initially been established as the London Azerbaijan Society four years earlier. The organisation now has offices in the UK, Belgium, France and Germany, together with a representative office in Azerbaijan.

TEAS has three main façets to its operations:

  • Business – TEAS supports its membership of European and Azerbaijani businesses. It provides a platform for organisations to establish links and strengthen their existing business relationships via a programme of networking opportunities across the regions.
  • Public Affairs – TEAS works to increase awareness about Azerbaijan amongst key opinion formers, key decision-makers and other political, academic and civil society stakeholders.
