Finland, Elisa Penttilä, Midnight Bow Tie
Product name: Midnight Bow Tie
Type of product: Bow Tie, Accessory (Men’s/Unisex)
Description (story of the item): The Midnight bow tie was inspired by moonlit landscapes and colours. City lights, stars and moonlight intertwine and appear side by side in the fabric as different colours are woven together. The fabric features blue, white and red cotton yarns, which gives the fabric a purple impression from afar. This is a slim/batwing bow tie, which means it's quite a bit narrower than regular bow ties.
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.
