Cory Sanderson always loved sketching and making things for people. Industrial Design was naturally the ideal syllabus for him. After working in the industry, he realised that he, and likely every other designer, have the potential to shape this world, and materialise their imagination. Sanderson decided it was time for him to make his mark in this world.
After four months of prototyping, designer Cory Sanderson, realised there was a huge demand for his product. He launched his new line of wooden bow ties on Kickstarter. Carved wooden bow ties are truly inimitable because they are made from wood, so the texture and colour will always have a distinctive look.
Through Sanderson’s Kickstarter project, backers will be able to get their unique carved wooden bow tie starting at $49 AUD. An unbeatable price for a custom-made, all natural, and very stylish item.
Wooden bow tie selection is offered in American Rock Maple, American White Oak, Tasmanian Myrtle, Rosewood, and African Wenge.
From my personal perspective, as the wood ages, the bow tie will take on a whole new feel, inspiring some new looks for the now “vintaged” bow tie. With years on its straps, it will carry on charm and character as an Victorian or turn-of-the-century home would. As the line matures, Sanderson can explore with various finishings and/or adding, and possibly carving out patterns into his bow ties, to broaden his collection. It’s an endless array of possibilities with these natural beauties!
“To its devotees the bow tie suggests iconoclasm of an Old World sort, a fusty adherence to a contrarian point of view. The bow tie hints at intellectualism, real or feigned, and sometimes suggests technical acumen, perhaps because it is so hard to tie. Bow ties are worn by magicians, country doctors, lawyers and professors, and by people hoping to look like them. But perhaps most of all, wearing a bow tie is a way of broadcasting an aggressive lack of concern for what other people think.” – Warren St John, The New York Times.
