Bow ties have been in the spotlight for a few years now, but one of Vancouver’s newest labels is taking the trend to greater heights with a more sustainable alternative. BÖ by MANSOURI is a collection of handmade bow ties comprised out of reclaimed wood and ethically sourced raw materials. The best part about the product is that they are fun and stylish, plus they’re super light, easy to wear and lady-friendly.
I spoke with Chief Marketing Officer, Sam Mansouri, to learn more. Check out our Q&A below.
Valerie Tiu: You are a father and son team. Can you tell us a little bit about yourselves?
Sam Mansouri: My father, Mehran, and I founded BÖ by MANSOURI through our combined passions for innovative design. Mehran has over 30 years of experience working in architecture, design and manufacturing. Growing up, he was always brainstorming ways to create functional yet aesthetically pleasing design solutions to help simply life. I’ve always admired my father’s design and vision and after completing a Bachelor or Arts at UBC, I decided to join forces with him to help market his brilliant ideas.
