You Only Live Once: Wear a Bolo

Life is too short to be boring. Break out of boring with a Bolo!

YOLO BOLO is reimagining the urban bolo tie, using new styles and materials. The unique designs give a fresh sense of style that can accentuate or make any outfit as an accessory or statement piece.

Bolos are for both men and women; and can be worn up or down. As a necklace, with a sweater or tanktop. or with a collar, buttoned or unbuttoned. A Bolo is the most versatile fashion accessory there is - from the bar or barbecue, to the boardroom, to black tie. A Bolo will tie it together!

Each YOLOBOLO is a handcrafted, limited edition piece. Handmade by artisans in our Nation's Capital.

​The first YOLO BOLO used 100% natural hemp cord, as both a fashion statement and political statement.

True Hemp is 100% Cannabis Sativa. Hemp was grown by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, and sewn by Betsy Ross and Levi Strauss. Hemp history goes back thousands of years, and today is super sustainable, and with a bold future.

Wearing Hemp bolo ties to the US Capitol, the YOLOBOLO helped to change the laws and legalize hemp farming in America!

Hemp is used to make a positive fashion stament. The natural look is already popular, and the true hemp is superior to jute, sisal or other generic natural fibers. Hemp is also used to make a statement. Industrial Hemp is a versatile product with thousands of uses. Yet, hemp is not used in any mass produced products, mostly because it is illegal to grow under Federal law. Wearing hemp is a real conversation starter, whether the conversation is about planet earth, history, or politics.
