Our goal is to embody greatness, inspire, connect and empower those around us to harness their inner potential by allowing them to express the best aspects of themselves in a unique, seamless and stylish manner.
Our company was inspired by the late Tyrelle D Shaw, who committed suicide back in June 2015. Tyrelle was the original creator of this idea, however suicide caused him to join the 44,965 Americans who commit suicide every year. This alarmingly high number shows the need for change and awareness of this problem. Suicide is an issue that’s plagued our communities for far too long and unfortunately it’s on the rise. At BeGreat Bowties, we want to show that every life matters and there are resources available that can help. In addition to supporting various suicide foundations, we donate 5% of every purchase to the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention.
