About this project

Bow Ties by Rukas The Cat 

Our company is a small husband and wife run business. We first began making bow ties for our cat, Rukas, because we couldn’t find what we were seeking in the pet accessory industry. Crochet bow ties allowed us to give a certain warmth element. Each bow tie is hand made to ensure quality.

We will need your help with several aspects of the company. The pledges will help us establish a website along with getting our name out there through marketing. You will also help fund materials and the work that will go into these bow ties. 

Our Bow Ties fit neck sizes 7-10 inches approximately. Please make sure to measure your pet’s neck before placing a pledge. Bow ties are not limited to feline use only.

Bow Ties by Rukas the Cat are made with hand picked yarn and are available in limited quantities. The crochet collar uses a button to secure in place and ensure the purrfect fit anywhere on the band.

Bow ties are meant for fashion purposes only. Our products are designed to unbutton under stress but please keep your pet’s supervised while being worn.

100% Acrylic yarn

Hand-made in the USA

Care: Machine wash on low. Do not bleach. Tumble dry at low heat. Do not iron.

Let your furry friend express their personality with one of our hand made bow ties! With several color combinations, find the purrfect fit.

The cat

Rukas (pronounced Roo-kiss) is an adult Himalayan cat that was adopted May 2013. He had been previously abused, but through the much love poured into him at the Old Bridge Animal Shelter, Rukas left that life behind. He now resides in NJ and loves to sport all of his bow ties, along with his angry face. Rukas enjoys car rides, boiled chicken and sitting on his cat castle.

Here are the available bow ties!

Risks and challenges

With every great product, comes an obstacle in achieving success. The difficulty with this project is getting the word out and building our brand in the pet community. Once that is done, our difficulty will be keeping up with the demand. Each bow tie is personally hand-made. We will definitely need to expand our employees in the future.
