This past Friday, Knotty Tie hosted their 6th anniversary party. Knotty Tie is a Denver-based retail manufacturer and clothing store focused on handmade scarves, bowties, pocket squares and neckties. The mission minded clothing company was founded with a purpose – to provide a better life for refugees through employment, training and fair wages. Knotty Tie is one of ULC’s tenants in the Santa Fe Arts District.

The event coincidences with the art district’s First Friday Art Walk, which served as the perfect venue for this dapper business party. Homemade Manhattans and upbeat accordion playing by Alicia Baker set the scene for this event, while Knotty Tie’s custom product was displayed on the walls.

These impeccably dressed group of entrepreneurs have made waves in the retail clothing business in the past few years. Colorado Governor Jared Polis wore a Colorado themed custom tie for his inauguration in January, Hillary Clinton visited the store during her 2016 presidential campaign and Knotty Tie was recently awarded $20,000 from FirstBank for the company’s commitment to ethical business practices and community involvement.

ULC spoke briefly with Kevin Gaertner, Knotty’s Digital Marketing Manager. Gaertner explained that the company has exciting news and partnerships to come in the future, but in the meantime the Knotty Tie team seemed excited to throw a great party and reflect on this past year’s achievements.
