About

Tiebreaker Bow Ties

Hi! My name is Katie, and I run Tiebreaker Bow Ties. I have always loved crafting and creating things with my hands, especially unique, heartfelt gifts for friends and family. After years of watching my mom sew my clothes, halloween costumes, show choir outfits, and everything in between, I decided it was time to learn. As I honed my skills, I realized that I love crafting unique pieces that reflect the wearer’s personal style and add a special touch to his or her day.

My shop combines vintage design and unique textiles with a focus on upholding eco-friendly fashion practices. I do my best to work with only responsibly sourced materials: I source remnant and vintage textiles from local fabric stores, rummage through boxes at yard sales and antique fairs, and explore vintage apparel in specialty shops. I love the reclamation process and the feeling of bringing new life to otherwise forgotten vintage pieces.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders! Special sizes, specific colors/prints, using your fabric - you name it and I'll do my best to make it happen. Send me a message and we can work out the product details, prices, and fulfillment dates. Please keep in mind that I work with vintage and remnant textiles, so some designs may be limited by the quantity of fabric I have in stock. Customizations may increase the price per item based on the additional time, supplies, or pattern alterations required; additional fees will vary so feel free to ask. I offer discounted rates for large orders and require payment in full before beginning work on custom orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Adult and child bow ties, skinny ties, cuff links, and pocket squares are packaged in recycled kraft boxes and tied with a ribbon. Dog/pet bow ties are packaged in recycled tissue paper and tied with a ribbon.

Is your purchase being shipped as a gift? Let me know and I will not include a copy of the receipt. I can also add a handwritten note; just include the information in the "Note to Seller" section.

Care instructions

Spot clean or hand wash bow ties and pocket squares in cool water and lay flat to dry. Spot clean skinny ties. Do not machine wash. All hand-stamped and hand-painted fabrics have been heat set to ensure the pattern will not fade, bleed, or chip when hand washed.

Shipping

I rely on the USPS tracking number to determine the status of an order. If your domestic package goes off the radar for 15 days or more, I can offer you a refund or replacement. Packages marked as delivered are considered to be as such and any discrepancies should be discussed with your local post office. If you'd like to add signature confirmation or insurance to your package, please contact me before or immediately after your order is placed. These add-ons will result in a small additional fee.

Colors

I do my best to photograph colors true to life, but colors may vary from screen to screen. I can never be sure we are all seeing the exact same thing; please let me know if you have any questions.
