I make accessories such as bow-ties, ties, pocket squares and cuff-links that have a one-off appearance. I have been looking for alternatives to natural silk. This year the scarves are made from Bamboo and the bow-ties from cotton fabric. All the designs are sourced from my fine-art abstract paintings, producing fluid, vibrant designs. I cut each tie and bow-tie from a different part of the fabric so that each one has a unique appearance; it's very exciting to be able to offer a customer something that no-one else has got. I find that men get very excited about the one-off appearance of my ties and bow-ties, finding them a great alternative to old-school stripes and patterns.
