Frequently Asked Questions

β–Ό What is Zimbowties?

Zimbowties is a social enterprise on a mission to create and inspire.

We create beautiful, handmade products from upcycled fabric offcuts and sell them around the world.

This allows us pay our artisans more than five times the minumum wage in Zimbabwe, save massive amounts of water by not using virgin fabrics and inspire Zim's talented and creative children through our scholarship program, "Bow Ties for School Ties".

β–Ό Which stores sell your products?

We sell all over the world! Here's where you can find us in these countries:


In Harare: KUMBA Home and Gifts

β–Ό How much do you charge for shipping?

β–Ό Do you do custom orders for weddings?

Yes. We love Zimbowtied weddings and there have already been a few weddings where our pieces featured.

We still use different fabric prints to make each piece but try to match the colour scheme of the wedding as closely as possible. So if you're happy to have an ecclectic wedding please fill in the contact form at
