Sustainable woodworks that save the environment while giving back.

Our passion for making wooden bow ties began after we received one as a gift in early 2015. The tie was chunky, unattractive, and poorly finished. From our experience in woodworking and fashion, we knew we could do it better.

We set out to make our own design, building off of the products that we saw in the marketplace. Some were large and chunky, while others were flat and lacked contour. So, like goldilocks, we made it just right, somewhere in between.

We had always loved the feeling of classic, fabric bow ties, so we crafted a product that emulated this look and style. The wood bowties we make have smooth contours that add dimension and depth while still keeping the profile of the tie smooth and clean.

Our bow ties are light and come in at just 2 ounces so it won't wear you heavy.
While the other wooden bow ties seemed 'gimmicky’, we made our ties wearable and stylish, believing that they could be more than just a novelty gift idea.

We use 100% reclaimed exotic and domestic hardwoods for all our hand made bow ties and plant one tree for every item sold.

Below is a selection of the most popular wooden bowties from our collection.

Over the years, we slowly built a team of incredibly talented people who share our passion for wood, craftsmanship, and fashion.

Together we are continuously working on new designs and materials to transform the landscape of men's neckwear and accessories.
