There are hangers designed especially for the delicate fabric of ties, or use a plastic hanger. Ties are also placed on racks because they should not be put flat in the drawer. Ties can also be rolled up loosely, and be placed in tie boxes that can be hanged on your wall. However, keep in mind that with this method, there is a higher chance of your ties attracting dust.

To keep your tie in its best shape, it is important to keep it away from direct sunlight. If your tie is constantly exposed to strong sunrays, then over time the color will fade.

Use hangers for your ties, and it would also be a good idea to use anti-dust bag as coverings for added protection.
