What's the story behind the unique switchable bow ties?

A hot day of June 2015, on a loved one’s birthday.

Catherine already knew that he enjoyed sporting a gentleman look, so a bow tie would be perfect! She thus thought of making some as gifts.

Her goal was to make a dozen bow ties of different shapes and colors. However, since creating each ribbon needed for the bow ties was time consuming, her fear of not making the deadline kept growing.

She needed to come up with an idea, a concept that could save her time in the creation process.

She resourcefully conceived her very own concept of switchable bow ties. The present was so well received that even birthday party guests started asking for some! The first photo shoot of switchable bow ties took place in September 2015.

An so Rose de Mai was born!
