Welcome to the home of Hapertas & Company

Our History

Hapertas & Company specializes in modern haberdashery for the classic gentleman. Quality is our top priority. We use the finest ethically made & USA sourced materials. Our current line includes small batch and bespoke Neckties, Bowties, Pocket Squares, Cuff Links, Scarves, and Leather Goods. 

Our studio started out in the kitchen nook in my home then quickly moved to a full bedroom. After a couple of years of growth we moved our studio into the Bothell Mall to expand production and start a retail storefront. Unfortunately, 2 weeks after move-in we lost everything in a devastating fire. Our entire building was a total loss. In October 2016 we started slowly rebuilding our business closer to downtown Seattle. 

All items are handmade in our new Seattle-based studio, in the heart of Ballard. Our handmade menswear accessories are truly heirloom quality pieces that will withstand the test of time. 

Hapertas & Company was featured in British GQ (January 2017, February 2017, March 2017), Seattle Bride Magazine (Fall/Winter 2015), Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine (Winter/Spring 2015), and in The Seattle Times (February 22, 2015).
