Lolic and Lime: handcrafted bow ties from Australia

Dana and Paolo from Lolic and Lime – the handcrafted bow tie specialists – are pretty much a match made in heaven. Paolo is Italian, and upon returning home to Melbourne from his annual family visit with a whole hoard of rare fabrics and sharing them with Dana in 2012, Lolic and Lime was born. Paolo taught Dana the art of bow tie making – something he’d picked up off his mother in Italy – and the two haven’t stopped since. Crafting beautiful bow ties that are acceptable for any occasion, each piece is either unique or part of an extremely limited series. The bow tie is back, so get on it.
