ZipTie is a revolutionary tie that breaks all the barriers of traditional ties.

Our idea was simple, why go through the struggle and pain of putting on a tie when you can easily just zip up your tie. It is true you can get a traditional tie that zips up, but with the ZipTie you also get a unique look that is still clean enough to be worn in place of a traditional tie. 

If you're going to wear a zipper tie don't hide it, flaunt it!

We want the ZipTie to be fitting of our customers who, of course, are meant to live life "like a boss".

The ZipTie is a great fashion statement for girls or guys.

ZipTie is meant to be worn in any scenario and everywhere, this could be the new trend in fashion and you can make it that way!

The classic ZipTie is made with wool felt and a black zipper and velcro in the back for adjustability in length. The classic nicely accompanies bold and bright colored attire.

The Kickstarter Edition "red" ZipTie stands out as a centerpiece when accompanied by basic colors such as black, blue and white.

The golden edition canvas ZipTie nicely accompanies dark or earthy colors.

The blue edition canvas ZipTie pops when worn with grey or beige. It can also be worn as a nice companion to a wide variety of solid colors bright and tame.

Thanks to a brilliant suggestion we realized that you can mix and match different colored zippers on the felt ties (classic and Kickstarter edition).

If you take advantage of "Benjamin's Reward" you will recieve one classic and one Kickstarter edition ZipTie, and you can mix and match as you please!

 In the process of creating the ZipTie, we have had several iterations of the product and build process. Originally working with various shapes, materials, sizes and glue versus sewing construction techniques among other things. By this process we have determined that the materials, shapes, and sewing techniques that we have developed are effective for creating the product we are selling today.

MANUFACTURING:

Once the campaign is over we will send out a survey. After we obtain our funds then we will start to purchase raw materials from a local provider for the ZipTie (fabric,thread,zipper, etc.) We have refined our manufacturing process by simply using our sewing machines we will then cut the material with our pre-made patterns and attach the zipper. Then we will be able to ship it all to you Kickstarters!

We hope you enjoy your ZipTie!

Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

A potential risk is that the demand for the ZipTies might be too much to create on our own.

The ZipTie is relatively easy to manufacture in small numbers we will be making the ZipTies by hand however if the demand becomes great enough we have selected a manufacturer where we will have them made. With a local manufacturer we will be able to tackle large amounts of order and still ship the ZipTies on schedule.
