TAZ is a bowtie & accessories brand inspired by sustainable design solutions.
We make one of a kind patchwork bowties, pocket squares and headbands out of the most luxurious material in the world; that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.
Inspired by the amount of waste TAZ saw first hand that the fashion industry created, we have partnered with luxury fashion houses, bespoke tailors and local non-profits to collect their remnant fabrics to create our one of a kind pieces. The fashion industry is the second most wasteful industry in the world, over 11 million tons of fabric is put into landfills in the United States every year and we want to change that.
TAZ is a classically trained tailor who lives and works in New York, NY. You will likely see him long boarding over the Williamsburg bridge in a suit and bowtie on his way to work.
All products are made by hand with up-cycled materials by TAZ in his studio.
“I want to change lives with my art. Pioneering a reverse logistic textile waste industry will save the planet, create employment opportunities, and build communities to ensure stability for future generations.”
