La Moustache is a unique enterprise based in Los Angeles, California where we proudly produce hand crafted bow ties, staying away from mass production. We started our business hand crafting our bow ties for family and friends in 2011. After a great response and a lot of encouragement we started showing our bow ties at Art Walks. The response and feedback was overwhelming. Our bow ties attracted consumers looking for something nostalgic, different, fresh and out of the ordinary, suddenly the demand grew. Our product is unique, because it’s handcrafted by experienced artisans and we choose prints that will reflect each personality, for any gender or age.
We are trying to keep the bow tie alive, the tradition of adorning the neck with a knotted piece of fabric dates back to the 17th century, by the mid-1880s the bow tie had become an essential piece in any man’s wardrobe, since then the bow tie has experienced an amazing change in function and form, in formal or casual. The bow tie definitely crossed gender lines into women’s wear in the 20’s and 30’s when movie actresses wore them in films. A bow tie is a must have item in anyone’s wardrobe, this is not a just strictly male accessory, it’s a piece of history.
