Description

These men’s bow ties are made using hand marbled fabric using the 17th Century technique of floating paint on a thickened water surface. The paint is manipulated with a wide spaced tooth comb. The bow ties are called self tie meaning that each man has to learn/know how to tie it. It is not stitched to keep the same knot. In fact, some of the ties have different fabric on the back which gives variety in the appearance by reversing the bow or the middle knot part.  Slide the fabric through the buckle to lengthen the tie.

My marbling patterns span from the traditional gelget and non pareil to more exploratory patterns. Each time I approach the marbling tray, I have carefully mixed colors to modern day color schemes. Next, I research patterns which would exemplify the newest hues to their best light. All along, the question of printing on silk fabric like scarves or paper comes to mind. Often times I will work on paper perfecting the pattern before printing on fabric. Neckties and bowties are fun to create. When a paper piece captures a stunning print, then it will become a frameable art work. I am available for custom work like groomsmen ensembles of bow ties, neck ties, and/or vests. Contact me for more information.
