Named after the steampunk horror author Mary Shelley who wrote the Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

The Shelley is a piece of kinetic steampunk art, this is not your professor’s bow tie.

A laser engraved cherry with red oak wooden gears, and an industrial design mahogany background bow tie shape brings this classic steampunk design together.

Cherry is our favorite wood to engrave. Wood bow ties made from cherry have good contrast, so we use cherry for bow ties with intricately engraved designs. The great contrast and naturally large grain of cherry means that these bow ties are highly recognizable.

Red Oak is a lighter wood with a red tone and smaller grain. We use red oak for bow ties with big, bold designs that rely on outstanding shapes.

Mahogany has a deeper, more vibrant color than walnut, and it has a small, straight grain. We use this dark wood for those unique bow ties that call for great contrast and bold patterns.

This custom bow tie is a part of the Club Round Collection. This collection uses the Rounded shape style – reminiscent of white-tuxedo casino dress, this nontraditional style has unique rounded ends, and is quickly becoming one of the most popular styles

Approx. 1.5″ tall, 4.5″ wide, and .5″ thick. All our adult size ties come with an adjustable tuxedo strap, fitting 13″ – 24″ in diameter.

Hello, my name is Shawn Wilson. Me and my wife we officially created W.K. Wilson on January 6, 2016 after many months of batting the idea back and forth and creating a product that would be original, designed well and put together to last.

The initials W.K. stand for Wood Knots which is what we originally called our wooden bow ties. So for we have created over 100 designs, created out of about a dozen different woods, with more woods to come. Our cool wooden ties have been featured in local news stories on TV, in print and on the web, and have been even seen in national television stories.

Oh, but we can never sit on our laurels, we continue to look for ways to design creative, unusual, and dapper new ties and have recently come up with our moving gear ties, laser cut out of cherry, red oak, birch, mahogany and walnut woods.
Character, Design, and Integrity is our mantra, and everything we do from brainstorming, to material, to production, to presentation, to quality control and customer service with that mantra needing to be fulfilled.
Our wooden bow ties are inspired a now 92 year old gentleman who has over 500 wonderful and wild bow ties. Max Moser, as well as his late wife Sherma, are remarkable characters. I have learned from them to look at things from a different point of view. To see the good, the unique, the wonderful in the unexpected in life. That is, in a very big part, what we wanted share by starting this business.
Max is special, not just because he is the “Bow Tie Guy”, complete with the white curly mustache, but because of his empathy, his perspective on life, and his understanding of what is most important.
As a company we seek to follow Max’s example to be different, to stand out in a crowd, not just in what we wear, but who we are. We want make things the very best we can, and have our creations become heirlooms. And we continue to strive to learn more, be better, do better, work smarter, give more today than yesterday. That’s why our mantra is Character – Design – Integrity.
