Last year PGF had the honor of creating beautifully handcrafted neckties and scarves for the mayor’s office. Visiting dignitaries receive these Tilikum Bridge inspired souvenirs featuring custom labels and hand sewn detailing. 

Just a year ago last week Barack and Michelle Obama, POTUS and FLOTUS of the United States received the first tie and scarf, kicking off a year of celebrating three things Portland does best: transit development, sustainable manufacturing, and of course, style.

The most recent recipient of a tie was none other than Paul McCartney, shown here with Mayor Charlie Hales and PETA Vice President Dan Matthews, naming Portland the most vegan-friendly US city of 2016.
