In the 17th century the "cravatier" (Tie maker) was an officer of the King's chamber.Louis XIV himself was the founder of this function. The "cravatier" had to present a wide rangeof ribbons to his Majesty every morning. Then, the «Grand Master of the Closet» was given the privilegeof tying the chosen accessory around the Kings' neck; and the "cravatier" was making finishingtouches, adjustments and had to express his admiration for such splendor.
The favorite of the King, the Duchess Louise de la Vallière enjoyed so muchthose ribbons, that she took some herself and created the famous "Lavallière" bow...
