How would you describe your style?
Geek Sheik! Our style is highly focused on creative sustainability, while staying true to our geeky personalities. I am always wearing bow ties and Saqouy is always constructing something amazing with legos, so we found a unique fusion of the two when we sat down and really talked about it. What we love most is how universal the styles are with all who wear our bow ties! There truly is something we can capture for anyone.
What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own?
We do not claim to have invented the lego bow tie because the idea itself could be created by anyone. We wanted to take the lego bow tie and and create a fashionable style that was both unique and sustainable. After much trial and error we found ourselves with an idea to ensure the environment was at the base of our building, an interchangeable neck strap! Woven from recycled plastic bottles, you only need one for endless options in styles, characters and sizes!
What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
We are inspired by all parts of life interacting together! Drawing our passions from comic books, video games and legos, to being outside in nature, creative collaboration and sharing our ideas of sustainable fashion with anyone wanting to be a part of the conversation. Most of the time we inspire each other and it's been such a beautiful journey to own a father/son business.
When do you feel the most creative?
We LOVE building to loud music and something with a good beat!! It is a 'must' in our creative process and always fuels our interaction not only with one another, but individually as well. Music, laughs and bow tie building.
Any special item you'll be releasing or sale you'll be doing at the fair that we should tell people about?
Definitely keep an eye out for our new bow tie home displays and specially made interchangeable barrette bow ties!
