About Us

 
"BowBastic™ is not a company that, among various products, also makes giant bows. BowBastic™ is a company that only makes giant bows. That is our vocation and that is our passion!",

Bowbastic was born from a personal need for a special moment. And it all started in 2010, when I decided, along with my sister, Nair, to offer a more urban car to our parents, who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

To make the moment more colorful and memorable, we searched the Internet for a giant bow tie, since we wanted the surprise to coincide with a lunch planned for a very beautiful event farm. As we couldn't find any big bow tie that was even remotely interesting, we decided to make one out of red cardboard. But the idea did not work out as we imagined it would…

The opportunity allowed us to identify a market gap and point out a business opportunity: to create giant bonds of superior quality for unique moments and special gifts.

And so came the idea of creating the Bowbastic laces (name that, in English, joins the words “laço” and “fantástico”). We started with some tests in a small format, and with my mother playing dressmaker! It was she, by the way, who idealized the format of the loop, as well as the way to assemble it…

 

To sum up: in two/three months we had the brand created and the product in prototype already tested. I started to show it and approach some car dealers, who really liked the bond and showed interest in buying it.

In the first month, we had a client from the north of Portugal, who ordered 50 units for the various dealers spread around the country.

 

Although we have created in 2014 a more economical loop, our main product é the Premium, which é aimed at highly demanding customers. It é made with a high density foam base, and then lined à m é in noble fabric, highly resistant and highly durable.

The premium quality fabric, called Fox3D, is washable and ultra-flexible, allowing for a flawless finish without wrinkles or creases. In addition to the lace, there are two ribbons in the same fabric, which are the final touch, whether around the car or the façade of a building or storefront.

 

We are a team of people passionate about what we do and focused on constantly improving our products and services. We are determined, objective, pragmatic, professional and always try to satisfy and meet the most unique needs of our customers.

And é that is why any gift, which wants to be unforgettable, deserves the best bow in the world. The Bowbastic!
