About Us

Jungle Rose Cartel officially launched in 2014, selling a unique collection of handmade bow ties and lapel pins. As an online store based in South Bend, IN we incorporate the culture and style of the young professionals we wish to inspire. We specialize in Bow Tie designs for the most dapper of consumers, while also offering the option of custom orders.

Jungle Rose Cartel believes in carrying a limited number of ties in each style. Our ultimate goal is to produce a style that can be envied by all, but copied by none.

The items we make to order – boys' bow ties and custom-pattern ties are not considered standard, and may not be returned or replaced unless there is a defect in the fabric or a flaw in our workmanship. In addition, if we've customized an item for you it may not be returned unless we've made an error.
