About Crooked Branch Studio
Our passion for making wooden bow ties began after our founder received one as a gift in early 2015. The tie was chunky, unattractive, and poorly finished. From our experience in woodworking and fashion, we knew we could do better.
We set out to make our own design, building off of the products that we saw in the marketplace. Some were large and chunky, while others were flat and lacked contour. So, like goldilocks, we made it just right, somewhere in between.
We had always loved the feeling of classic, fabric bow ties, so we crafted a product that emulated this look and style. The ties we make have smooth contours that add dimension and depth while still keeping the profile of the tie smooth and clean.
Our bow ties are light and come in at just 2 ounces so it won't wear you heavy.
While the other wooden bow ties seemed 'gimmicky’, we made our ties wearable and stylish, believing that they could be more than just a novelty gift idea.
The response we received was overwhelming, and after launching our shop on Etsy, we officially released the line on our own website in early 2016. This first year was incredibly successful, with Crooked Branch Studio selling over a thousand bow ties to 43 states and 11 countries.
Over the years, we slowly built a team of incredible talented people who share our passion for wood, craftsmanship, and fashion. Together we are continuously working on new designs and materials to transform the landscape of men's neckwear and accessories.
