Drew is new to Denver, arriving just 2 months ago. Prior to that, he resided in Washington DC after spending his childhood all over the country as a military brat. Growing up, Drew always used sculptural wood art to express himself, leaving him with wood scraps lying around. One day, Drew noticed one of these pieces of scrap wood looked like a bowtie, sparking the idea to turn his scraps into wearable art. Drew realized this could be a way to turn his passion into a business, and dedicated himself to “bring something to men’s wear that is natural, reclaimed, and a conversation piece.”

Drew began manufacturing interchangeable bowties and later expanded to making sunglasses out of old skateboard decks and cufflinks carved from reclaimed wine barrels. Drew is dedicated to providing an environmentally friendly product, using 100% sustainably sourced materials and avoiding dyes or stains.

Drew is enjoying his new home here in Colorado and is beginning to meet people and frequent events like the Horseshoe Market. You can catch him at his next event at the Jackalope Arts Indie Fair.
