Hand-made bowties, Made in France.

About the project

What is Nœudiste?

"Nœudiste" are original handmade bow ties, designed and manufactured in France by a Chilean. Funny, isn’t it? But, why not?

All raw materials are purchased in France and the bow ties are designed and sewn in the small workshop of Francisca Bravo (designer) in Arras.

Choosing the bow tie?

Nœudiste has created a gamma of bow ties called « traditionnelle ». These are classics forms and colors designs (black, beige or burgundy).

The "touch" gamma, brings together eclectic designs, you can use them for special situations.

Finally, the "alternative" gamma, with bow ties created to be worn during the day and evening, distinguished by very original fabrics and a vintage touch.

You will not go unnoticed.

Bow ties ¡Ready to wear!

For the time being I started with a line ready-to-wear because it is easier for the customer, the bow is already done!

I know a few people who bought classics bow ties and after trying with video tutorials, it is still being difficult to make the bow, especially if you want to wear for  go working, with no time in the morning.

I will design bow ties ready-to-wear, yes, but with originality! The designs are unique and also, made in France.

What is the Nœudiste profile?

These are people who love being original, most of them love the detail that makes the difference, but still natural.

These Nœudistes have a kind of nostalgia for retro fashion, rescuing details from the past to make a present more original.

What is the contribution of your project?

Noeudiste offer a product that is not easy to find in the market of men clothing accessories. The access and choice possibilities according to clients likings, is an important target in Nœudiste project.

Other input of my project is the environmental side. Without being a 100% green, I pay attention to the environmental impact in the development process.

For example, the packaging is multifunctional. It is used to contain the accessory, allows protection required for delivery and is nice enough to offer it as a gift, no additional packaging, avoiding waste of materials. The choice of cardboard as the packaging material, promotes recycling.

Another aspect of working that I will continue to explore, is the recovery of tissue directly from French factories. « Waste » (new fabrics) become raw materials for Nœudiste, without the require of additional manufacturing procedures.

What are the funds for?

How will I use the collected funds?

I'm going to build the branding (business cards and other visual supports). I also need to stock up on dry goods to continue the bow ties production and buy new fabrics

I need to acquire new tools to improve efficiency, build online store, buy the packaging, pledges.

I want to get a surprising final product.

Nœudiste is a project in which I strongly believe. I put all my energy to make it work. This is a compatible work with everything that moves me, as being more often with my family and raise my daughter. I have the desire to be independent.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Mathieu and my family in Chile, my two main pillars of support, encouraging me and motivating me and when I need it.

Thank you !
