It takes a certain audacity to hunt alligators. Andrew McGehee comes by this quality honestly, through a deep family hunting tradition and of making things with the spoils.
As a designer, Andrew has created a line of bowties which balance those earthy roots with an elegance and attention to detail that is truly remarkable. Check out the honest craftsmanship and a dashing style at Bayou Bowties.
Andrew wanted packaging that embodies the same standards for natural materials, elegance and fit and finish that he uses for the bowties themselves. Much like a classic watch, packaging for a great bowtie can elevate the experience, whether you are opening it for the first time or handing it down to the next generation.
Bayou Bowtie two-piece boxes are a rigid construction using 100% recycled chipboard. The base is wrapped with a brown kraft and the lid has a matte black stock. The Bayou Bowties logo was screen printed after construction, using aqueous ink.
