Movin' and Shakin'

A lot has been happening with Kerf and here's a little update: We have moved our headquarters in Squamish, BC, and we've been getting into our groove. We had a condo renovation with the move, a new puppy, all while trying to move our business and commute into Vancouver for regular scheduled business. It's been challenging, fun, hard work, interesting, exhausting and very rewarding! Finally, now that we're into 2019, we feel like we're ready to readjust.

Straps for Saints

Hey there, Kerf is SO excited to introduce vegan black leather neck straps to the line up! You can now select a vegan strap when purchasing your wood bow tie at no extra cost. They are black and look nearly identical to our original black leather adjustable strap. Best part? From now until December 11th, Kerf will be donating a portion of bow tie sales purchased with a faux leather strap to Saints Rescue an animal sanctuary in Mission, BC, providing care for senior and special needs animals. Even better? Every year for our Make It Vancouver show, we choose a fundraising opportunity and donate a portion of ALL sales to a cause close to our hearts. This year, we...
