We are very pleased to feature Xoelle. They make the cutest bow ties we have ever seen. We can't wait to incorporate these preppy little numbers in our design boards.
Location: Pensacola, FL
Tell us a little bit about yourself. I'm a 31 year old maker of bow ties. I make them out of unloved or abused neckties and button-down shirts- so each one is unique and retains a history.
I'm also an artist, photographer, Mom, adventurer, and cookie-baker.
What do you love about weddings?: What don't I love about weddings? I love the intense joy and hopefulness that is bundled into that day and I love the fuss that everyone makes about everything. Weddings are magical. They are ephemeral but everlasting.
Tell us a little about your work. How would you describe your style?: My bow ties are sentimental. They belonged to someone in another form before being a bow tie. Bow ties in general are classic and preppy, but when non-traditional colors and patterns are thrown in they can become so hip and personal. A bow tie tells that world that this is no ordinary man.
What advice do you have for grooms (and brides) when you are working with them?: There's always a way. Be clear about what you want and then find a way to get it. Working with smaller vendors/handcrafters will allow you to customize every aspect of your day the way you imagine.
Where can a bride/groom purchase your products?: Etsy
