Necktie Binder / Necktie Knotter

Necktie Binder

In today’s world, necktie has symbolic meaning and significance as business culture. But frequently, to bind a proper necktie might take some time or get complicated. What if it was possible to simplify the process with a tool?
The necktie binder is a designed product, which emerged from this idea. This bipartite product allows people to bind the wished necktie type with putting together two parts and putting wide and narrow ends of the tie through the numbered holes sequentially up and down. Or without disassembling, it can be also carried as an accessory like a tie bar.
