Beaded Ties in South Africa

For those of you who don't know how to tie a tie, we found a perfect solution for you. Recently, we took a trip to South Africa where we explored the villages and urban centers of the country. Don't be surprised if you find a few new designs to come inspired by our travels. In the picture below, we found ties made by the women of Lesedi. Look closely and you'll notice the ties are made of beads and placed on necklaces for those men challenged by knots or for women looking for a unique accessory. Whichever way one chooses to use the beaded ties, all will admire the brilliant use of color. Bravo to the women of this village, especially for their hand crafted work.
