Behind the Bow Tie: R. Hanauer Workshop Tour

Behind the Bow Tie: R. Hanauer Workshop Tour

Welcome to R. Hanauer! Did you know every single one of our bow ties are handmade in our Fort Mill, South Carolina workshop? Working in a small family business requires the flexibility to wear many hats, and when the cutter is out sick, you can even find founder Randy on the cutting room floor.

Here's a behind the scenes look at how the best tying bow ties come to life.

We're proud to offer excellent customer service, all out of the same Fort Mill workshop you see above. If you are unsure about a color or design, just ask. We would be happy to send a free swatch! E-mail us at or, if you're old fashioned like us, give us a call, 800-514-9707.
