Creative necktie revolution to advance ties by 100 years. Help us bring awesome ties no one has experienced before to the world!

“A Knot Theory tie is like having an everlasting explosion on your chest… it’s devastatingly beautiful and obviously dangerous.” – Brian Vidovic, Founder, EXP Entertainment, Inc. 

Update: We'd like to thank the awesome video crew at Reel Illusions (www.reelillusions.net) for filming us and putting together this FANTASTIC video of our recent public photoshoot, taken place in Vancouver's historical "Blood Alley" in Gastown!!! It was a totally fun night - check it out ;)

Introduction

Hi, my name is Tanya Huang, designer and founder of Knot Theory.

Knot Theory is a revolutionary necktie label, with a vision to bring innovation to neckties, and to bring these innovative neckties to you - creative men and women around the world. Even if you were certain you won't wear ties, these redefined ties just might change how you think about ties!

Hugeness

People often believe Knot Theory is a huge company, because of our brand image, the quality of our products, and the scale of our R&D! From the start I set out to be comparable and even surpass the established brands, in both quality and professionalism, but Knot Theory is like an undiscovered model - we are young, gorgeous, but not huge! Though I work hard each day towards the day it becomes a well recognized label worldwide, known for being bold, innovative, and well made.

What the money is for:

The money raised here will go towards making our production process better and more efficient. Currently, because ties and knots have never been made this way - and because our designs are so precise - each tie is painstaking to make, even for the most expert tailors and sewists.

As Knot Theory grows, we need a more cost-effective and time-effective way to produce the ties. Your pledge will help us achieve this. We'll get custom tools and machine attachments to make life easier for our sewists, and train more sewists to make our ties which meet our quality standards. Your pledge will help our production remain sustainable as we grow, and not having to go overseas.

Your pledge of any amount is deeply appreciated. Plus you'll receive the amazing rewards, detailed below!
