    Our story so far...

    Zimbowties is a fledgling startup that is hoping to use fashion to change the lives of children in Zimbabwe. We produce eye-catching, handmade bow ties from high-quality African-print materials that come from all over the continent. A portion of all the money we make goes towards supporting children's education in Mutare, Zimbabwe.

    In Zimbabwe, many people have the most incredible clothes made up from material that they buy from all over Africa. Much of this material is bought by tailors who have often travelled by bus for many days, to distant countries, to find the best new prints. When these tailors return they make up the outfits for their customers but are left with offcuts of material that they often just throw away! We've been collecting these off cuts and are getting one of the ladies, Margerie to make our Zimbowties!

    For every bow tie that we sell, we pledge to donate 10% of the money towards children's education in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Our business is based on sharing bright and brilliant African designs found on material across the continent, and we hope that by helping educate the next generation we will ensure that the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of Africa continues to flow!
