Handcrafted Wooden Bow Ties

I first started developing my wooden bow ties many months ago after being turned off by the available options on the marketplace. Almost every design felt physically flat, with no contour. I was intent on developing a design that was comfortable to wear, stylish, and most of all, emulated the three dimensional qualities of classic, fabric bow ties. This is where I developed the Crooked Branch Bow Tie. I went through countless prototypes, fabrics, and woods until I was satisfied with this design. The tie is smooth to the touch, rich in color, and adjustable to make comfort standard on every piece. It originally came in three woods but is now available in over 12, with various matching fabrics. Crooked Branch Bow ties have become incredibly popular and have sold in 7 retail stores, 41 states, and 14 countries.
