The End Doesn't Matter
Each bow tie you see here is handmade and one-of-a-kind, and we rarely stock more than 2 or 3 bow ties made from the same print of fabric. This is because all of our bow ties are made from off-cuts of fabric that would have otherwise gone to waste.
So if you see a design you like, don’t wait too long to purchase it as we’re pretty sure we won’t make another one like it!
Material: 100% Cotton
Neck size: 37-49cm (14.5-19”)
Bow tie length: 83-95cm (32.5-37”)
Care instructions: Wipe clean or hand wash gently in cool water. Colours from African fabrics often run on first wash so take care to wash separately from whites.
Packaging: All our bow ties are packaged in boxes handmade from recycled paper. Let us know at checkout if you want to help us reduce waste by not receiving your bow tie in a box.
Zimbowties works with 8 tailors in Zimbabwe, who make bow ties in the most beautiful colors with cheerful prints. The tailors receive a fair price for making the bow ties. The bows are made from up-cycled residual material (mainly cotton and less than 5% nylon) from the clothing industry in Mutare, Zimbabwe. The tailors make the bows by hand and package them in material made from 90% recycled cardboard. Interesting: buyers can choose on the website not to get packaging with their items if they think they don't need it, to help you reduce your amount of waste! With every product sold, Zimbowties reimburses a week of schooling for a child. Not just like that, but with a "creativity grant" that stimulates creative thinking among the children.
