Woodgeek Store has taken the seriousness out of the traditional bow tie and recreated it in wood. Once worn only at black tie events and other such formal occasions by men, we have reinvented it with different types of wood as a fun, quirky and stylish gender neutral accessory.

The wooden bow ties are made from zebrawood, walnut wood, birch wood, rosewood and a dark stained wood. Unlike what most people believe, wooden bow ties come in more colours than brown! There are red bow ties, white bow ties, black bow ties and striped dark and light brown bow ties along with an earthy brown bow tie.
Rosewood lends a natural red tinge to bow ties, which is reminiscent of the burgundy bow tie of Dr. Who.

The pale creme colour and natural wood grain of the birch wood make the bow ties subtle yet bold. The bold contrasting pattern of the exotic zebrawood bow tie makes it a bow tie worth remembering. The black wooden bow tie is added with a dark stain to give it its dark colour.

You can choose 3 fabrics from a variety of 13 fabric centers! The fabrics for the wooden bow tie have a velcro tape which helps in interchanging the fabrics easily.
