Peckham Rye

"Peckham Rye - cockney rhyming slang for tie".  A form of slang originated in London's East End (circa 1800).  Traditionally to be a true Cockney you have to be born within the sound of Bow Bells (Church of St Mary Le Bow, Cheapside).  It was the language often used by the London street traders to conceal their illegal activities from the recently established police force, the Peelers.

Reflecting the humour of British style, Peckham Rye is a collection of slim blade ties in printed, woven and knitted silk, 'Cockney Chokers', slim tubular scarves in eccentric paisleys
