Brides & grooms

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

On this page you’ll find accessories especially suited for your wedding day. Whether you’re thinking of a customised bow tie or a wedding shawl, for me it’s an honour to be part of your wedding day and to create you a unique look for the big day!

I make both the bow ties and the shawls at my studio in Helsinki. I design the bow tie fabrics and weave them on a floor loom, and I buy the shawl fabrics from a local textile company that imports nettle yarns and has them woven into fabric in a Finnish micro-mill. Both products are made in Finland and they’re made responsibly. They’re truly kind of sustainable luxury!

I’ll be glad to tell you more about the products and the customisation process, so read more below and please be in touch! Contacting me doesn’t create a contract yet, so if you have any questions, just ask!

Bow ties

Both the bow ties available in the webshop and customised bow ties are a great accessory for a wedding! The bow tie fabrics are woven by myself in my studio in Helsinki, where I also made the bow ties. The bow tie fabrics are woven with cotton, linen, wool and/or silk depending on the fabric. The bow ties come in three sizes from a wider and rounder look to a sleek, batwing-type bow tie, so there’s surely one for everyone!

When you purchase a customised bow tie, I will contact you and you’ll get to choose the bow tie’s colours, size, fabric pattern and materials. And of course we can make a matching bow tie for your best man or your father, for example.

A customised bow tie can also me made for your own fabric if you have a special fabric you’d like to use. The length and width of the fabric that is needed depends on the bow tie’s size and shape, so please be in touch and we’ll make your custom bow tie come to life!

Shawls

In my collection of wedding shawls you’ll find the Open water -shawl, made with a nettle and organic cotton fabric (30 % nettle, 70 % organic cotton) that is woven in a Finnish micro-mill. The smooth fabric has a smooth shine to it and a long fringe at each end. This shawl is a beautiful choice for a wedding accessory, and a sustainable accessory that’ll bring joy long after the wedding day, too!

The shawl’s nettle-cotton fabric keeps you warm in a cold breeze and protects from the sun without being too hot. The shawl is wide so it covers the shoulders and back generously. You can wear it open or closed as every shawl comes with band that can hold the shawl together. This shawl is also great for everyday use, because it wraps around the neck once quite comfortably.

The shawl is available in the web shop in the size 52 cm x 142 cm (+ fringe). The shawl can nevertheless be made longer when desired. Please be in touch and we’ll find a way to make the shawl just right for your wedding day!
