This wooden bow tie is handcrafted from Walnut, then chemically 'ebonized' to achieve the rich black color. The chemical finish goes on clear, then reacts with the natural tannins in the wood to turn it black. Because there is no dye or stain, you don't need to worry about the finish wearing off on your white shirts. This tie is perfect for 'black tie' events as a way to stand out while still fitting in! It is finished with mineral oil and beeswax (both edible) which help prevent the wood from drying out while still keeping its natural feel. Straps come in grey and are not visible once the bow ties are put on. Adjustable sliders on the straps accommodate most neck sizes (13-19"). If you believe you need a different size, please let me know.
It is important to note that because of the unique qualities of wood, bow ties sold will not exactly match the color/grain of the ones shown, but I will do my best to ensure a close match.
