Terrell Grayson, the founder of The Simple Bow handcrafting Bow Ties

An Introduction: From the Founder

As a company birthed from a sequence of tragic life events, we get our drive to succeed from the desire to help others going through similar life experiences. With the creation of “The Simple Bow Foundation,” a portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to help provide needed resources to families like mine touched by cancer, victims of gun violence, the fight against hunger, and homelessness prevention. 

Our products are created to help you stand out, get noticed, feel confident, and always make a great 1st impression. They are unique not only because of the design, and limited edition, but because each one is touched and hand-crafted by someone who in some way is fighting for life, fighting for an opportunity, or fighting to just make someone’s life better the next day than it was the day before. 

Join us on this journey. Share our story, news about our products, and support “The Simple Bow” and our foundation along the way!

And together with us…
