This wooden bow tie is a very nice conversation piece, designed and handmade by cabinet maker Muggi, in Iceland.
The bow is L x H x T (thickness) : 11 x 4,5 x 2,5 cm
The neck piece: 39 - 52 cm
Each piece is uniquely made and as environmental friendly as possible. After the wood is perfectly dry, Muggi cuts it down to stripes of the perfect thickness and then bends it three ways to form the nice bow tie.
Muggi has evolved his own special and secrete way of bending the small piece of wood so that it will not brake and hold it's position after drying.
A neck piece, also made from wood, holds the bow in place and fits perfectly under your collar. At first the neck piece might feel a little bit uncomfortable and stiff, but as soon as the wood warms up by your body's temperature, the wood softens and takes the shape of your neck.
The wooden bow tie is not fragile and will last a very long time if handled with care. Wood is a natural material and responds to changes in humidity so when not in use the best way to store the bow tie is to press the neck part a bit together, right after use when the wood is a bit soft and warm, caused by your own body temperature, so that it won't widen to much. Do not however press the neck part together when the wood is dry and "cold" as it adds fragility and it might then break.
If you feel like the wooden bow tie is dry, just soak the bow in clean and natural friendly white oil, leave a generous amount of oil all over the bow's surface for the wood to drink in the oil, and after an hour or so, wipe off the remains with clean cloth or paper napkin.
