But Dmytro Kryvolap, 28, didn’t give up easily when he decided this spring that he couldn’t live without a tie. What he got out of it is a flourishing business.

“I went shopping for a bow tie, but Kyiv shops only had some black or white bow ties, most of them polyester, of lousy quality,” Kryvolap says. “I wanted a bow tie with an interesting pattern, and there was nothing like that in shops.”

Instead of dropping the idea, Kryvolap asked his wife Tetiana Zadlich, who knew a bit about sewing, to make one for him. Patterns were easy to find online. The problem was they could not make up their mind what fabric to choose out of about 7,000 types offered by a U.S.-based website for the purpose.
