Authentic Native American Handmade Bolo Ties
Since 2007, the bolo tie has been the official state tie in New Mexico. Locals and visitors alike can find a selection of bolo ties that also showcase the cultural heritage of the state from Southwest Creations.
About Our Bolo Tie Selection
Southwest Creations has relationships with silversmiths and jewelry artists from many Pueblos and Tribes throughout New Mexico. Our bolo tie selection features characteristic designs, patterns and styles of Southwestern Native American peoples, including:
- Cluster design
- Hopi, Navajo
- Stone inlay (Zuni)
A number of bolo ties also feature focal stones like turquoise and coral.
In addition to the neck piece of the bolo tie, some ties feature handcrafted silverwork tips to adorn the ends of the leather cord as well.
We offer a selection of lengths and colors of leather cords for a complete tie.
Finding the Right Size Bolo Tie
There are two parts to every bolo tie:
- The neckpiece
- The cord
Both pieces need to fit the wearer for the right look. Typically, the wider the neck circumference, the larger the neckpiece so as to achieve attractive proportions. The tips of the cord should fall about 1” above the navel.
