Would a woodchuck chuck this wood?

Bowties from Plank

Clockwise {1, 2, 3,}

I’m so in love with these whimsical little nuggets. After spending an entire day trapped in reception purgatory and watching the rain soak the world outside, stumbling across these really made my mind numbing afternoon worth it. Big {HUGS} to @refinery29 on the twitters for putting this into the world feed. I <3 you Twitter!

Plank is a line of wooden bow ties and the brainchild of Norman Teague, the head of 22B Design Studio based out of fair ‘ole Chicago, IL.

I was clickin’ through the Plank online store and started pinning my faves, only to look up and realize I had pinned almost all of them. Upon much careful introspection, and a good nights sleep, these three up top are my final-final picks. I love the juxtaposition of the soft fabric and structural wood, but with the warm glow and richness that only something “of the earth” can provide. Can you snuggle with a wooden bow-tie? Add a good and witty name like “The Stony Island?” Forget it, is people->product marriage legal yet? I’m changing my middle name to Equality until it is! I would like to wear multiples at the same time. Maybe as a bow tie, or pendant or brooch or belt or garter. If I were having a wedding all of the men would be wearing these.

Normally I might put something like this in the ugly or awesome column and make a little quiz-quiz and get your votes. But I literally can’t, I think they’re too fantastic. Alas, I am just smitten from afar, I can’t even put words together, that’s it. Bye.
