SwitchWood: The first interchangeable wooden bow tie

$10,276

90

SwitchWood combines elegance and ingenuity to create the first interchangeable wooden bow tie. With our patent pending design, the possibilities of customization are as broad as the imagination. Below, this one knot allows the potential to explore all the various types of wood and wing styles giving you a completely different look each time. There are 120 different combinations achievable between all of our options guaranteeing you'll find something to suit your style. 

The journey of each SwitchWood bow tie begins by hand selecting the finest  fabrics. After scouring local distributors within our general area, the quality of fabric didn't meet our standards. We decided to take a trip to Manhattan to select the most eye catching fabrics.

We then seek out the most pristine samples of wood and select each piece in person. The wood is then hand milled and precisely cut by a CNC router to shape our custom designs. We appreciate the beauty and warmth of natural wood so every piece is left unstained and treated with linseed oil to accentuate its color and grain. We guarantee no two pieces will ever be identical making Switchwood a true display of originality. 

Switchwood is hand assembled by local craftsmen and manufactured parts have been fabricated in the United States. We are not only dedicated to our community but also the environment only using wood from sustainably harvested sources.

We encourage you to explore our pre-designed box sets containing some of our favorite combinations; or create your own entirely new look allowing you to customize every facet of your bow tie.

My team and I here at SwitchWood are confident that this project will go off without a hitch. All our manufacturers are lined up and ready to go and we promise to keep our backers completely informed concerning the status of their reward or custom reward. Any pressing news we receive that may have an effect will be relayed immediately. We work directly with our suppliers from start to finish and even conduct all quality control in-house. We anticipate rewards to be delivered within 90 days but depending on the volume of backers this time frame may fluctuate.
