The Wooden Bow Tie, a part of our Tea Party collection,
is handmade for us by the Icelandic cabinet maker Muggi.
He bends strips of wood to form the elegant bow with
nothing but the wood itself holding it together. He then tans
the ash wood by “burning it” (so says the man himself!),
adding the beautiful tone to it.
The unique look and idea behind the Wooden Bow Tie truly
makes it a conversation piece as it draws the attention of
whomever it meets, whenever seen and wherever worn.
The Wooden Bow Tie is available in two types of wood,
tanned ash and cherry wood.
- Bowtie size is 11 x 4,5 x 2,5 cm
- Neck size is 39 - 52 cm
and will last a very long time if handled with care. The wood
is a natural material and is sensitive to 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.
