Water-marbled silk bow ties, created by Cindy Stalnaker -- The process -- I hand-dye the silk yardage in my Laguna Beach, California studio, using high-quality Chinese silk. Water marbling is an ancient process, and is based on floating drops of paint on a viscous water-based solution. Rakes and other tools are used to manipulate the colors into unique patterns. Once the pattern is created, it's transferred to the silk by dipping, then heat-setting. These are truly one-of-a-kind creations! I've added a page showing the process. All bow tie purchases include a gift box and an info sheet detailing how I do the water-marbling process.
Care of the bow ties: Dry clean only.
These bow ties are adjustable in length, for 14.5" - 20.5" neck sizes, with the use of the slider bar and hook. Don't know how to tie a self-tie bow tie? YouTube has a bunch of informative videos: that's how I learned to tie them!
