Absolutely beautiful ties!


Bought for my nephews to wear for my niece’s upcoming wedding. In fact, even more gorgeous in person and they completely exceeded my expectations!


Can’t wait to see the boys wearing them at the wedding!

Emma is an amazing craftsperson.


This tie is scrumptious and we are so excited to have it become part of the story of our daughter’s wedding as my husband wears it walking her down the aisle. 

Thankyou so much!

I ordered matching ties and bowties for my wedding.


Emma was very helpful and accommodating with getting them to us in time for the wedding.


They look exactly as pictured and are great quality. We had so many compliments on them and couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

The bow tie is fabulous!


It can be hard to find one for a woman that goes to the smaller neck size and this was spot on.

Obviously awesome quality. Very happy.
