Co-founders Mark Johnson and Jeremy Priest started Knotty Tie Co., a social enterprise headquartered in Denver, Colorado, in an effort to provide employment opportunities for Colorado’s refugees and asylum-seekers. The company debuted in 2013, and has moved mountains since then. The company makes custom neckties, bowties, pocket squares, and scarves, all at an affordable price point.
Knotty Tie is a triple whammy with a triple bottom line.
- Made in Denver, Colorado.
- Helping resettling refugees earn a living wage.
- Implementing an eco-friendly process.
Most recently, we’re excited to announce that Knotty Tie recently opened up its first retail store!
