Beaux Tie

Origami meets offbeat haberdashery in this distinctive paper bow tie. Lightweight but strong, this creative cravat is made from found notebook paper lined with Japanese washi paper and finished with three coats of clear decoupage that seals and protects. The fully adjustable neckband with hook and loop closure is made of complimentary grosgrain ribbon. Conceived as a bow tie, the nerdy, neutral materials make this a unisex accessory that can also be worn as a hair bow and used to coordinate couples' outfits for a special occassion. The unique materials and impeccable craftsmanship of this tie make it a stand-out for any uncommon wardrobe. Handmade in the USA.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Madeline Cherney

I am a New York based cultural anthropologist with a concentration on the native cultures of the Americas. I also create eco-friendly, wearable paper bow ties. As an anthropologist who teaches cultural awareness, eco-conservation and social egalitarianism; I became inspired to deconstruct the formal symbolism of the elite, black tie statement and revamp the 'bow tie' into a unisex, multi-diverse, social statement. I use paper instead of fabric due to its everyday usage and its ties to the natural world (trees). My inspiration comes from nature and from the everyday. My artistic influences stem from minimalist Japanese panel art, which emphasize scenes of nature. The art of paper folding is also an aspect of my Beaux-Tie creations.

    Comments about NOTATION PAPER BOW TIE:

    My boyfriend is a teacher, so it seems fitting that he'd have a notation paper bow tie. The bow tie came in a cute little box, so no real need for wrapping paper. It's very cute, and seems lined with some sort of plastic (or really THICK paper), so seems like it can withstand the elements, to a certain extent.
