The Wooden Bow tie project. Wood bow ties for everyone

$1,659

31

We asked ourselves a question. How to create a bow tie that is unique, comfortable and out of the ordinary. The answer was wood.

Our Wooden Bow ties are ready after several revisions, alterations, meetings and many product testing for the past months we have found the final model to start manufacturing. We have in hand only prototypes to check on quality, durability and for picture and video purposes. If funded successfully we will be able to start producing the first line of bow ties.

The only obstruction we have now is capital to fabricate these items; with your help and support we will be able to make the first line of wooden bow ties. You decide if we go into production or not(Meeting our goal will determine if we can produce or not).

We are confident we can deliver a very good quality product engineered, handcrafted and made from scratch in the USA.

After our campaign is over and if we can successfully meet the goal we need in order to start our first run of bow ties, a survey will be sent to every backer to know which style(s) you would like to get once the product is manufactured.

The Material

Wood is one of the oldest material on planet earth one that is used for million different applications. Though it is considered a renewable resource at the pace we are consuming it and using it we might see a drop in this vital element in the next years by consuming more than what it is being planted. That’s why we have taken a first step to being responsible while mixing the elements with fashion without destroying our natural resources. All the wood used in our products is Salvaged wood. Wood feels and looks awesome.

The Models

What does it mean to wear a wooden bow tie?

The expression we want to make by wearing a bow tie made out of salvaged wood is one that will reflect confidence, edification and class. As it is bow ties already carry all of these characteristics but the wooden bow tie will add a sense of fashion and nature to the whole aspect making it even more unique. Not only they look unique when you wear them but the wood is also treated which is safe to the skin. The ultra slim wood material also makes the wooden tie comfortable to wear.

How it all started 

The sketch shown below was the first schematic of the bow ties, which served as a blue print to start our new product.

The first sketch of our first ever Wooden Bow tie.

Fabrication  

Once we agreed on the types of wood to be used then we started analyzing what the best method to fabricate our wood bow ties was. This is what we found!

The wood is cured and then cut with a Wood Cutter machine for accuracy to the measurements shown in our sketch. After the Wood is cut to size then a Wood bevel machine is used to work on the edges of the bow tie to give it a nice finish look. Last, our logo is engraved on the back part of the unit and the elastic band and fabric are put together. The elastic band is sewn into the fabric for high durability.

Specifications

Woods: Cypress - Padauk - Birch - Purple Heart

Width: 4- 1/2''  Height : 2'' Thickness:1/4''

Fabric: 100% cotton

Elastic band:Adjustable from 12'' to 20''

Clasp:Primed Black Metal

*Important* Please keep in mind that some wood might be different in tone/color from the prototypes you see on the video and pictures meaning you might get a wooden bow tie with a slightly color variation than what it's shown here. Wood tones and finishes vary from plank to plank. Our goal is to only use recycled and salvaged wood for every bow tie we create and some planks may or may not show distress from previous usage therefore you might be able to observe color variation.

Project Goals

The funds collected from this campaign will go towards the creation and manufacturing of the first line of bow ties. Being a small brand we can't afford the start up cost to start manufacturing the first ever wooden bow tie collection. That’s when you come in. With your help we will make this project go from sketches and drawings into reality. If we are able to successfully surpass our goals then we will unlock new designs and fabric colors as we go but without your support none of these is possible. Even if you can't support the campaign we ask for your help by spreading the video with your friends and family in the various social media outlets.

How Everything Started

Being raised abroad the US and now established in Miami Florida has influenced greatly the way we see fashion and design.Fashion is what defines this beautiful city (Miami) and we take pride on being from Miami.T.V.

Risks and challenges

One of the problems Tv-Head Clothing might face is delivering a product to your door in time. Between the process of manufacturing and outsourcing some of our materials we might require a few extra days in order to deliver the goods with the high quality we are recognized for. We have been in the manufacturing business for a few years which thankfully has given us sufficient knowledge to overcome any problem that might arise in the process of making a high volume order. We are confident that we have the ability and resources to serve all of our backers and do it within reasonable time. We are also ready and prepared in case the results are greater than expected.
