Custom-made Bow-Ties!

Fabric options for bespoke bow ties I’ve just posted a new section on shop.Lavaguy.com for custom made bow-ties. You pick from my collection of >32 vintage and rare textiles (velvets, silks, brocades, geometrics, stripes, solids…) and choose from 7 bow-tie shapes, and I’ll create a special bow-tie for you!

I’ll also be adding more newly-created bow-ties ready to ship.

[Update: the bow tie cut-n-sew and pocket squares patterns are now available for sale on Spoonflower.] Continue reading
