Family-owned Stange Berlin is the only self-manufacturer of bow ties in Germany and was originally founded in 1934. From the colourful to the classic, Stange Berlin offers a wealth of choice and a bow tie for every occasion. Providing some insight into what has kept the business going, Juergen Stange, second-generation leader of Stange Berlin says: “Our product is an accessory for individualists and we have created a niche that stands out from what is nowadays mass produced in Asia.” Speaking about what he likes best about the work, he says: “I particularly enjoy our cooperation with the Italian silk weavers, and knowing we produce products that fulfil not only our high-quality expectations, but those of our customers as well.”
