Looking to spice up your wardrobe? GabeJade's bowties, headwraps, and pet accessories are crafted from African textiles in saturated hues and dynamic patterns.
It all began when founder and designer Ade Ogbomo's nephew asked for a bow tie that looked like one of her African dresses. When Ogbomo could only find "blah" options on the market, she sought out to craft her own. Of course, people started asking where they could buy her nephew's new bowties, and GabeJade was born. Now, you can shop an array of options for him, her, and even four-legged friends.
