Papigion is a business initiative, with limited edition and fully (100%) handmade bow ties. Our primar aim and purpose is to offer unique bow ties, in various designs, vintage, modern or classic, made in Greece and particularly in Thessaloniki, with reasonable prices, considering that they are fully handmade. Additionally, we attempt, to a certain extent, to help the local economy in Thessaloniki, in the general context of sustainable development and the ethical business framework. More specifically, our bow ties are created entirely with materials purchased from small shops in Thessaloniki, a city where fashion has evolved more than in other cities, as there flourished the most creative fashion houses. The beauty of these bow ties is that they are crafted by hand with needle and thread, without using glue or similar products. Therefore no bow tie, whether it belongs to a same code or not can be similar to the previous one. Our bow ties are unique!
