Product name: Stripe Bow Tie
Type of product: Bow Tie, Accessory (Men’s/Unisex)
Description (story of the item): Inspired by pinstriped fabrics and suits, this striped bow tie was designed to be a go-to item and a classic accessory. The fabric features a blue and black base and white accent stripes that run diagonally across the bow tie. The fabric is woven with cotton yarn and has a flat, dense surface that gives the bow tie a sleek, refined look. Like pinstriped suits, the look of this bow tie is elegant, yet intriguing.
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.
