It all started late at night, when a man encouraged his beloved woman to follow her passion and create beautiful things with a mission. Founded in 2015, Lab of Kings is a sustainable and socially responsible brand which aims to make people more self-confident and dauntless.
Second to oil, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter in the world. 1.7 million tonnes of material is wasted every year in the UK (just imagine how much materials are wasted in the whole world). About 15% of fabric intended for clothing ends up on the cutting room floor. This waste rate has been tolerated industry-wide for decades. Up to 95% of the textiles that are landfilled each year could be recycled. At Lab of Kings, we upcycle small pieces of fabric and turn them into bow ties, dapper accessories that help us save our planet.
Lab of Kings is inspired by vibrant, ever-changing cities and their culture. Our design focus on the basics of shape and form while materials are urban, modern and bold.
For a long time, it was believed that bow ties can be worn on special occasions only. We're on a mission to change this attitude. Bow ties have to be worn every day because they make people more confident than ever. Besides, they spread inspiration all around them and make people more creative. So this is it, we're bringing bow ties to the streets.
