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.
