WEDDING PARTY ORDERS: I am delighted to make custom orders for wedding parties. I am happy to provide up to 5 complimentary swatches and encourage you to request same before placing a custom order.

ALL items are handmade.
There may be small size discrepancies since I am human and not a machine :)

BOW TIES measure 2.25" - 2.5" vertically at their widest point, 4.5” from side to side when tied and fit collar sizes 14.5" - 19.5".
Non standard sizes are available on a custom basis - send me a message.

I price all the items I make very competitively and offer exceptional quality and value. I do not give volume discounts as I make every order by hand and don’t save anything when filling an order for more than one item. Thank you for your understanding on this point.

I do not offer wholesale pricing.


SHIPPING: I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for your package once it is marked as "DELIVERED" by the USPS as I have zero control over what happens to your package after it is placed in your mailbox. Tracking info is provided by Etsy and by so you can track your order's progress. If an item is lost by the USPS please contact me.

You are responsible for the accuracy of your shipping address - please check your mailing details at the time you place your order.

INSURANCE: If you wish to purchase shipping insurance please contact me BEFORE completing your purchase and I will be happy to arrange it at a nominal extra cost.

RETURNS: please check your packing slip for details on how to return a NON-CUSTOM bow tie.


Cummerbunds have a standard 7 business day processing time. I can, however, provide a 2 business day expedited service for a $35 rush fee using the link to the Rush Processing item available in the Cummerbunds section of my shop. Per the notice above under CUSTOM ORDERS, all cummerbunds and cummerbund sets are custom orders and are therefore non-returnable.


All my products are attractively packaged for you and bow ties are in clear bags tied with a grosgrain ribbon. Gift cards are available upon request and if you want the gift to be a surprise I am happy to wrap your order in tissue paper before tying it with the grosgrain ribbon.


Product images are for illustration purposes only so the item you actually buy in any given fabric design may differ in terms of color and/or motif placement from the product photo due to the scale and placement of said elements on the fabric I use.
Due to differences in computer monitors, colors of products may appear different from those shown in my shop.
The images in my shop are copyright protected and unauthorized use of those images is strictly prohibited.


I no longer ship directly to any international countries except Canada. This is due to unacceptably high shipping costs, tracking and delivery difficulties in destination countries, and burdensome EU requirements and red tape.

If you live overseas and wish to place an order, I am happy to ship to a US address so that you can arrange for trans-shipment (either through a trans-shipment company or through the good offices of family/friends).
