All our bow ties will fit a 15.5 - 17 inch collar beautifully. Message me to inquire about custom sizes. We will have adjustable sizes by October 2016. The necessary pieces are not available in Lesotho so a crew is training to make them in house.
We do offer wholesale options. We wouldn't be able to thrive without our amazing stockists. Please reach out to us and we'll get back to you with our wholesale offerings.
These are two spellings for the same material, the South African cotton print textile we use. In South Africa and most other countries the word is spelled Shweshwe, more in line with its pronunciation. In Lesotho we spell it Shoeshoe because the textile was named after Moshoeshoe, the first king of Lesotho. This is the local, Sesotho spelling. So we respect the culture of the nation where we do our work, despite that the rest of the world outside the Mountain Kingdom spells it differently.
