Finland, Elisa Penttilä, Liquorice Bow Tie
Product name: Liquorice Bow Tie
Type of product: Bow Tie, Accessory (Men’s/Unisex)
Description (story of the item): This bow tie’s fabric has an unexpected source of inspiration: liquorice filled with white, mint-flavoured filling—a familiar taste to many in Finland and a kind of local delicacy. The fabric combines a black base cloth with a soft, white slub yarn, and the result is a playful and textured fabric, which gives this bow tie a truly unique look.
The fabric for this bow tie is handwoven by Textile Designer Elisa Penttilä on her floor loom in her studio in Helsinki, Finland. Once the fabric is woven and taken off the loom, it is wet finished, left to dry, pressed and finally sewn into a bow tie, all done in her studio. The strap is also specifically made for the bow ties, with metal fasteners sewn in by hand, giving the bow tie a luxurious feel.
