Industrial Wool Felt Bow Tie, Ivory

$ 75.00

Ivory Industrial Wool Felt Bow Tie. 100% wool felt with lovely darker edges from the laser cutter. We love the contrast!

Made from industrial 100% wool felt, these bow ties are sure to impress the most hard-to-buy-for designer, dapper gent or staunch minimalist who has everything. This ain't your momma's craft felt - this is "MAN FELT" - it is a thick, sturdy, pressed or needle punched felt, used in industry for vibration absorption and abrasion resistance.

Ready for gifting, each purchase will include our iconic Forest Stewardship Council Certified blond wood keepsake (and safekeeping) box - free with your purchase of a felt tie!

Wool is naturally flame retardant and does not require the treatments that flammable materials such as cotton, rayon, and acrylic require. The carbon footprint to harvest 1lb of wool is less than that for cotton, as it is manually sheared versus mechanically processed cotton.

This is a self-tie or "freestyle" bow tie - the kind you tie yourself. The ties are fully adjustable and are traditional, no hook. Raw laser-cut edges. Darkened edges are part of the cutting process and design.

Don't be scared. Wool felt ties are surprisingly not too difficult to tie, they just take a little fiddling. Once you do it a few times, it's easy!

We do all of our own laser cutting, from the pattern drafting to the making the computer and vector file talk to the laser, to watching it cut (Must mind it through the whole process. Fire = bad!) to washing and cleaning the edges and sewing the center seam - every step from start to finish. This is not farmed out to some anonymous laser shop. Our shared laser cutter is located just a block from our screenprinting workshop in Detroit's Historic Eastern Market.
