Client Testimonials

Hey Claire,
Yay they arrived! They are so gorgeous, even more so than the photos!! Can’t wait to see all our handsome lads and h2b in them.  And of course, can’t not mention the adorable bow tie for our dog, Rosie! She’s going to look so spiffy, I’ll definitely have to send you some pics of the day. Thank you so much for everything Claire, you’ve been such a sympathetic ear for me to share my wins and have a bit of a whinge to, which has helped so much because I know you get it. You’ve also been my most stress-free vendor/business to work with, which I’m eternally grateful for. Don’t ever change! xx

Claire is one of the most helpful and pleasant people we have dealt with during the wedding planning process. She’s so efficient, and it seems like she will do anything to add something special to her customers’ wedding day. We wanted to buy some extra fabric for little heart brooches to match the tie and bow ties we got from her, and she immediately gave the details of the store where she got the material from. When we let her know that they are out of stock, she offered that we can just come fetch some of her extra material at no charge. This level of customer care is not something you experience every day, and has really added to the fun part of wedding planning. Thank you so much, Claire!

Finding bespoke accessories in a mall is pretty much impossible which is why I resulted to the wonders of the interwebs to make sure my wedding entourage looks the part. I soon realised that this process had challenges of its own as these items would be either ridiculously overpriced or customer feedback is near non-existent and extremely unprofessional.

Two things made Claire stand out from the crowd – the prompt and professional way in which she handles all communications and the perceived quality, value and uniqueness of her products. Communication skills might seem like it’s less important than providing a quality product but (especially in the world of online shopping) it shapes the perception you have of the business/person that you are dealing with long before you get hold of any of their products. Claire certainly takes a lot of care to ensure that her customers are serviced via transparent, prompt and professional communication.

Claire’s business conduct and her products certainly complement each other in the sense that they are both of exceptional standard!

Claire literally saved me loads of stress on my wedding day. The bow ties I ordered from another business never arrived and 6 days before my wedding I made contact with Claire. 2 days later and I had the bow ties in my hands – yay! The bow ties looked even better than the images online and just completed my groomsmen attire perfectly. Claire was super friendly and efficient which is a combination hard to beat. I would highly recommend Stitched as the look, quality and overall experience was amazing.

The ties just arrived, they are so lovely! Thanks so much for making the process so easy, it’s much appreciated.

The bow ties are beautiful thank you, they arrived today 🙂 your photo didn’t do them justice! They matched (the bridesmaids’ dresses) perfectly and looked fantastic!!! Soo happy with them thank you.

Only the Best

Ethically Sourced Materials

I use natural fabrics because a polyester or satin tie is still made from plastic. I choose beautiful fabrics because it cost the earth something to make that fabric.

I want those resources used to count by making something you’ll wear again and again and keep for the next generation.

As a priority I buy from local New Zealand businesses as much as possible to keep supporting local.

Made from start to finish with my own two hands, you can rest assured you’re not supporting unethical manufacturing.

Every order is sent in recyclable packaging in compostable or recyclable courier sleeves.
