Our Story: What Makes a Bow Tie From StoryWood Bowties Unique

StoryWood Bowties is about life stories – the story of the reclaimed wood we use to create our products, but also our company’s efforts to help people reclaim their own life stories.

There’s a story behind every product we make. Whether it’s the story of Whiskey Row, and how those buildings founded an worldwide fascination with Kentucky Whiskey, the story of Hillerich and Bradsby, and how their bats changed baseball, or the story of a reclaimed tobacco barn or firehouse from Louisville Kentucky, each one is unique and special, and gives our ties a history and tradition you won’t find anywhere else.

There’s a story behind our company too: it’s a story of overcoming adversity and believing in other people and ourselves. The founder of our company, Ali Muhammad come from a tough upbringing, going from group homes to jail to homelessness. He’s spent most of his life overcoming adversity. His life is a metaphor for our product. That if you believe in something, no matter how tarnished it is or what it’s been through, with investment and refinement it can be beautiful.

To that end, we invest in people no matter their circumstances to give them jobs and help them succeed. We donate a portion of revenue to Waterstep International, who trains people in developing countries how to use safe water solutions like water chlorination, bleach making, health education, and well repair. We donate a portion of revenue to Trees Louisville, who plants trees in areas of greatest need.

We also make really awesome bow ties, cuff links, and pocket squares

Tired of boring neckties for Father’s Day? Check out StoryWood Bowties. They are a delightful, unique show piece! I love the creative story behind the collections and historically connection to city. Ali hit it out of the park with this one – genius…….

A wide variety of styles to select and you can mix & match the patterns. I can’t wait for my next event to show off my recent purchase.

If you want to take it to the next level, add custom cuff links to complete the look.
