River Wind Bow Tie
River Wind Apartment Complex in Spartanburg, SC is where co-founder Ben lived during his years at Wofford College. Many memories were made here for Ben, ones that take him back to his 20 year old self in an instant.
Made with guinea and pheasant feathers. Center wrap is black grosgrain. No dyes are used, giving each tie a unique coloring. Wrap around adjustable hook, fits sizes 11″ to 20”. Bow dimensions are 2.5” tall by 4.5” wide. Feathers are all-natural and sustainably sourced.
In November of 2007, Ben Ross crafted turkey feather bow ties for the groomsmen in his wedding. Five years later, one of those groomsmen, Jeff Plotner, saw an opportunity in what Ben had created, and the two partnered together to launch Brackish. For the next several years, Ben and Jeff worked together to scale the growth of Brackish while staying true to the very first core value of the company – respectfully re-purposing the beauty of nature. In September of 2019, they launched their first women’s collection including feather cuff bracelets and feather earrings. The company operates from a design studio in Charleston, SC.
