This past Sunday we exhibited at Capsule in Hayes Valley, an indie designer extravaganza. Our favorite thing about doing these events is meeting new designers and finding great talent and creativity.
This Sunday I didn’t even have to wander far from my booth to find the best in show. My neighbor to the right set up a stand selling hand made wood ties. I know they are really hand made because he was making them as he stood there; replenishing his stock throughout the day as it sold. AMAZING! Not only that, all his wood ties are made from recycled wood gathered from all kinds of sources, old wood beams, floor boards, furniture you name it. This means each tie is not only eco-friendly but has it’s own unique look, age and story.
These ties are not just for trend setting men, but are great for adventurous statement making women too. Wood Thumb is based in San Francisco but you can buy their unique wares online at www.WoodThumb.com
