What had been a passion for wearing bows became a passion for sharing them, and in 1993 Beau Ties Ltd. Of Vermont was born – launched with a collection of just eight ties on a single page (our first catalog!) mailed to 5,000 people. Response was immediate and positive.
Our little Vermont company began to grow – gradually taking over every available room in Bill's house. He and his wife, Deb, kept their day jobs until, with a deep breath, they launched themselves into the tie business on a fulltime basis. At about the time most folks reach retirement age, they decided to break ground for a new building for Beau Ties where sewing, shipping, sales and marketing operations could all work together.
Upon settling into our facility, we expanded our product line to include neckties, cummerbunds, pocket squares, ascots, cravats, neckties, boys' ties and scarves. Over the years, in response to customer suggestions and requests, we have continued to expand our offerings to include more accessories and apparel – for men and women. And while not everything can be produced here in Vermont, we have diligently searched for, and found, other companies and products that meet our high standards of quality and service.
