Howdy folks. I'm the wife of NYR, and the two of us are getting ready to release a line of handmade neckwear made in Brooklyn, NY under our new company's name, Yellow Hook Necktie Co.. Fell free to check us out on our website (currently under construction) or our facebook page which is linked at the bottom of our site holder page...and wish us luck! Here's a little about what we plan on doing:
We are a very small startup based in Brooklyn, NY. We are just dipping our feet into the world of exquisite men's neckwear, featuring some beautifully designed, lightly constructed ties for a discerning clientele.
What separates us from most other tie makers, is that our ties are made entirely by hand, and entirely by ONE artisan. We do not use a factory set up where each employee is responsible for a part of the tie, but each maker is responsible for the entire tie, from start to finish. We feel that this will give the wearer a unique, beautifully made item, at a fair price that will connect the wearer to the maker in a way that only a hand made garment can. We strive to bring this "old world" aesthetic to our customers, and bring back wonderfully crafted hand made garments, one at a time.
We also strive to keep as much of the money you spend on our goods, right here in the US. Almost everything (except for some of the finer fabrics we use/will be using which are from England or Italy) we invest in our product will be from American companies; from our merchandise tags, to our packaging supplies and materials, to our wonderful local artisans (who are ALL locally based).
We hope you guys give us a shot and that you love what will be producing!
