Belfast Bow Company

For the last few weeks I have been working with Belfast Bow Company, capturing their making process, taking product shots and organising styled shoots to show of their beautiful handmade products in different lifestyle settings!


Karen and David are the wonderful team behind these Belfast Bows. Sewing away from their work space at home in Dromore They started this very successful business idea from their apartment in the heart of Belfast.

From weddings to formals to even casual occasions these bow ties are sent to lovely customers all over the world. If you are looking for something handmade and local to make your suit pop then Belfast Bow Company are your people!

I love having the opportunity to capture the making process of products, I feel so honored to have a glimpse into the lives of some makers and get to understand them a little bit better.

With Karen and David, I spent a lovely relaxed morning at their home. After having a cuppa and a great chat about how they got started I was excited to capture them in their element.



Belfast Bow use a lot of Irish linen to make their products. Its always good to know how your clothes and accessories are made but its also a bonus when its made with local material.

Karen and David also hand package all their orders and include a personalised note to say thank you to all their happy customers.


I love these guys for so many reasons but one of them is because they work so hard to create an amazing business and design unique and genuine products that last.
