Is 2019 the Year Neckties Become a Staple in Women's Wardrobes?

Is 2019 the Year Neckties Become a Staple in Women's Wardrobes?

February 18 2019

If social movements have anything to do with it, we think so. Neckties have been around for centuries, worn by both men and women. The design and material has changed through the years, but to this day, a necktie is a necessity in a man’s wardrobe, yet nowhere on the list of closet necessities for women. But that could change in 2019...

The Women that Inspired our First Necktie Collection

The Women that Inspired our First Necktie Collection

June 18 2018

We have been loving doing events and talking with people about our women inspired neckties! And with each event or conversation, we always get the question of "how did you decide on the first set of women to design after?" 

It is a perfectly valid question as selecting the first seven was the most difficult part of the design process, but arguably the most fun at the same time. 

As you are probably already aware, each of our neckties come with a storyboard that includes a unique illustration of the woman and a write up on what makes her such a badass. Read on to see what was written on the boards for each woman! We think it's a worthy read :)

Is it Possible to Design a Necktie Inspired by Moms?

May 11 2018

On this Mother’s Day, we thought, how fun would it be to try and design a necktie inspired by ‘Moms’.

We understand this is nearly an impossible task, as moms are as diverse as we all are as people, so we took on the mission like we do with all our designs and turned to our research to help us determine the most genuine design.

History of the Women's Necktie aka Pussy Bow (Photo Gallery)

April 18 2018
Everything old is new again and that couldn't be more true for women's neckties (aka pussybows). It has been a relevant garment accessory for centuries, been a symbol of demureness, femininity, and power AND it has been called a host of different names including neck bow, floppy bow, bowtie, neck scarf, necktie, and pussybow to name a few. Take a stroll down memory lane with us as we look at how the women's necktie has transformed over the years.
