My name is Cait. I love recycling and re-purposing. I love to take something and think of a whole new purpose for using it. That is how I came up with the idea to use ties in a fun different way. I have always loved old ties. As a kid I used one of my dad's old ties as a leash to take my favorite stuffed tiger for a walk.
I love the rich colours and textures of vintage ties. I am attracted to the fun and fanciful designs motifs of by gone eras. With the changes in our culture that advocates casual Fridays to be everyday. Ties are just not being warn like they used to. I see ties leading a lonely empty life and hear them calling me to rescue them and bring them out into the public to be admired once again.
Each tie has a name. It is named after the man that I imagined could have worn that tie. I like to image the life…
