Our patent pending interchangeable snap-in cover concept is like none other and allows customers the flexibility they need to differentiate themselves from the rest. Our priority is to provide our customers with a unique and high quality tie bar concept that is second to none. We are aiming to build a collection that includes stainless steel, wood, leather, stone, and other designs to emphasize the concept of "One Bar for Every Look".
We did it! Thank you to all of our early backers as we reached 100% of our goal within 9 hours and have now surpassed 400% which exceeds our first Stretch Goal! With this achieved, we can guarantee delivery of the stainless steel covers to our backers and will begin manufacturing our Bubinga, Black Walnut, and Zebra natural wood covers. Our backers can now select this as an option on their reward survey (with updated delivery timeframes due to production)! Please continue to share our project on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter - we can't do this without you!
Wow, we hit that quick! THANK YOU - you guys are amazing! We have started our sample production of Leather Inlay Covers with stainless steel. They will be completed the week of 7/31 and we will post photos as soon as they arrive. These should provide a classy and sophisticated look and will be available in multiple shades of leather. The Leather Covers will be available to backers but they won't be put into mass production until funds clear so you will have the option to select these on your reward survey following the campaign with an updated shipping date.

Wow! WE DID IT - all of us! Thanks to all of our amazing backers we have surpassed $50K and have unlocked Carbon Fiber covers as a selection within your reward. We will use the funding from our campaign to begin the process of building the inlay mold, creating samples, and beginning mass production. We can't thank you all enough for your support and we look forward to bringing you yet another awesome cover choice!
After working in a professional setting for the past decade and wearing suits day in and day out, tie bars became a way to set myself apart from the rest. It's a simple addition to any outfit that can make a dramatic change to your appearance but there is one problem - they are expensive! After seeing tie bar popularity continue to increase over the past few years, we decided that there had to be a way for consumers to own multiple tie bars at an affordable price.
We began brainstorming and created our patent pending design that allows consumers to purchase one tie bar/clasp (you only need one!) and multiple unique covers at an affordable price. You will have endless opportunities to change your tie bar with every outfit you own - why change your tie and pocket square daily but leave your tie bar the same? How neat would it be to own tie bars in stainless steel, leather, suede, wood, and other various finishes/colors?
Once we had our idea, we hired an engineer to create mechanical drawings, had 3D prints created of our design, and hired a contract manufacturer. Within six months' time, we created a website, had our logo developed, had sample products manufactured, designed our packaging, submitted our patent, and ignited our exposure to the marketplace via social media.
It's been an incredible experience thus far but this is just the beginning. We need your help and support to fully bring this to the market and, once we do, we can assure you that we'll continue utilizing our creativity to bring you the best quality and most unique tie bars on the market. Thank you for supporting OneBarCo. and we hope you enjoy our product!
