I'm tired of all the compliments I keep getting on this tie! No, seriously...it's terrific, and just what I was looking for. Well-made too, and the seller was a VERY fast shipper. Thank you for adding that "special touch" to a festive occasion.

About

Yes, I Used to Sell Cars!

Sometimes your life path can take some interesting turns!

After graduating with a BS in fashion design with a crammed in theatre minor (yes, mine was BS ha ha), I was trying to figure out what to do with it. Well, one day, while selling cars in Springfield, MO, I received a phone call from a local shop owner who wanted to know what the heck I was doing selling cars & asked me to visit her because she needed help. So, I went across the field to her shop – yes, crazy thing, she was just across the empty field – & spoke to her about helping. That ended my short car sales career, as I left it the next day & joined her to help in… her leather shop!

It didn’t start out so amazing ha ha! My first item to make, I was given a leather hide, scissors, & a pattern & told that if I had any questions, she would be in Nashville. “What?! But, I have no idea what to do.” It took me half an hour to finally make that first cut into my first leather project!! I made many beautiful southwestern leather jackets & vests, & custom leather biker jackets. And that, my friends, was the beginning of my leather career.

It’s been many years since that first day. I’ve been in the Los Angeles area since 2002 & have since opened my own small leather design studio in San Fernando. I’ve always thought that men need some cool accessories to wear and I know many who seriously dislike wearing neckties. So, my primary intention has been to create awesome soft, comfortable, easy to wear, fashion forward, & unique neckties for men. I’ve expanded to include several other leather accessories including ties for women, earrings, cuffs, boot spats, & more.

Each item is one of a kind & carefully hand cut & made by my two hands. I don’t use cutting dyes or machines nor do I use laser cutting. I even free cut all my laces. The only machines used are a manual press for piercing, one for applying rivets & snaps, & my branding iron. Also, several hammers & fun cutting tools are used regularly to create huge messes.

My favorite & primary leather to create with is soft, beautiful deerskin. It makes fantastic ties! The leather is carefully sourced and ethically obtained. Be assured that no cute “Bambi’s” were used or harmed in the making of our ties! I love animals!! Even as a teen, I had animal posters decorating my walls while my friends had trendy band & hot guy posters ha ha.

Know someone who is a necktie or bow tie addict or likes wearing things different from what everyone else has? Maybe someone who wants cool wedding ties or just wants to rock their look? Then you have come to the right place! Etsy is one of our online shops, & not all items we have available are on this site. I do create custom items, so please ask if you have something in mind.

Peace, love & leather…

P.S. I love the “&” sign & use it instead of spelling out the word, as it’s way more fun & interesting to look at! 
