Beau Ties of Vermont
Our bow ties are handmade by Beau Ties of Vermont featuring beautiful bow ties made by bow tie connoisseurs for bow tie connoisseurs.
Just as they have since 1993, Beau Ties makes bow ties from the finest silks from around the world — including twills, saglias, dupioni shantungs, jacquards and wovens (along with the occasional all-cotton bow ties) — and as always, all of their bow ties are handmade right here in Vermont, USA.
For the first six years the company operated out of an ever-increasing number of rooms in their house, and for several of those same years both Bill and Beau Ties Ltd. co-founder Deb Venman kept their day jobs, Bill as head of the Addison County Economic Development Corporation and Deb as partner in a local law firm.
It wasn't long before the demand for Beau Ties made this a full time job, and the business outgrew the house. In 1999 they moved into a new purpose-built facility with the sewing, shipping and telephone operations at the same location. During the workweek you can also watch their ties being made by a talented group of Vermont craft workers.
The Gallery carries a full assortment of fabrics and designs - from career oriented designs to classic colors, geometric, floral, hobbies and even some nautical themes. If you don't know how to tie a bow tie - we can show you and will give you a printed instruction sheet to take home.
