Hi. Today I wanted to share about a new ecofashion project in Louisville, KY. My friends Maya & Ali had the idea to drive around the city, look for buildings with historic value that have wood with some life left in it, & reclaim the wood to create fashion- wooden bowties!
Out of this idea their company StoryWood Bowties was born. Recently I had the opportunity to help them make the neckbands for their bowties. Here is a quick lil’ video of the process:
I especially love that each bowtie has a story- the bowtie in the video is from the pews of an old church that at one time was part of the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.
