Tietop is the first tie protector in the world, made of biodegradable material, disposable, fully customizable.

After my grandfather died, the first image that I remember is of him wearing his favourite tie at a family gathering, surrounded by his loved ones, and as elegant as ever.

I always told him: Grandpa, that’s a very nice and elegant tie you’re wearing.

Upon his death, my grandmother gave me that tie as a present, for me to wear it, but honestly, it scares me because I worry that after stain it it’ll end up shattered from washing it. And with it one of the firmest memories that I have of my grandfather.

I guess the same will happen to many people with those ties they receive from their loved ones as a gift, from their girlfriend, their nephews, grandchildren, or on that anniversary that means so much to you, and you see all the care of your loved ones reflected on it.

Tietop was born with the aim of using this piece of cloth and keep it as the first day you had it, making it possible for that memory to last endlessly.

Tietop is the first tie protector in the world, made of biodegradable material, disposable, fully customizable with the design of your choice, and that keeps your ties as impeccable as the first day.



Its manufacturing also encourages the employment of people with disabilities, allowing this product to capture all their love and good work for manual labour.

Who doesn’t want to carry the photo of their kids, their new born, or their favourite basketball or baseball team? The first drawing of their children, or a photo of their beloved?

Tietop lets you have all these memories in your day to day activities, plus protecting your tie in a simple, easy, and economical way.

In our daily life there are times when a tie is part of our life; going to work, in a celebration, or on that special day. When you wear this piece of cloth every day you quickly realize the problem that it is to stain your tie and look like a fool for the rest of the day. When you're eating in a restaurant, or in the office, if you want to have a few minutes of quiet time and go to the park for a walk.

And then the unexpected happens, something very annoying and that has no solution;

That horrible stain on your tie! What a shame! What will you do in this afternoon’s meeting?



Everybody will look at the stain, and also that special tie will no longer be the same, it will gradually wear down and loose the initial colour it had.

That forces you to take your tie to the dry cleaner’s, the embarrassment of that day showing your tie with your new pattern, and when you get home you’ll be told "again tie to the dry cleaner’s", it’ll deteriorate and you’ll end up not wearing it anymore or having to throw it away. Why aren’t you more careful? I'm sick of spending money on this”. And what are you doing about it? You put it inside your shirt, over your shoulder, or do not wear it for fear of damage it.

Relax, it's over, there's a solution to this problem and you'll be able to use that special tie as often as you want.

Also TieTop is practical, economical and fully customizable. The idea came because we were tired of going to the dry cleaner’s to spend money, not using that special tie from my grandfather, my father, or a gift from your partner, etc.

For all these reasons we worked very hard to come up with a solution to the problem of staining our ties that was easy to use, convenient to carry, and environmentally friendly, making it of biodegradable material, but also being fully customizable.

So you can put your design, image, logo, the image of your favourite team, that lovely phrase from your son, that nice car you just bought, anything you want. Imagine yourself in the office with your TieTop customized with your family photo, your favourite team, or anything else.

You won’t go unnoticed! Our goal is that you can find TieTop in your local restaurant, in a hotel, your airline or in that supermarket you do your shopping.


TieTop is the result of many hours of work, finding materials, sketches and designs to create a final product that met all our expectations. Tietop took over 15 prototypes, trials with more than 10 different materials and many hours of hard labour. But the hard work has paid off. Today we can use that special tie without worry.



In addition, with the work already done we submitted the application for product patent. And because of its innovation and ingenuity TieTop was patented. 

So what do we do now? Well, we manufacture it. In a small factory multiple people are handling the materials until the product hits the market.

TieTop is a reality. Here we show you the designs chosen for you:


But certainly you will be wondering how do we use this TieTop product? Its usage is very simple. You introduce the tie through the opening of the applicator and move the applicator to the top. Once you get to the tie’s knot you get the tab marked with a green fluorescent strip, introduce it behind the tie’s knot and deploy the casing to the bottom. Your tie is now fully protected against any unwelcome stain.



To remove simply pull the cover and it’ll fall under its own weight. As it’s biodegradable you can throw it wherever you prefer.

So simple, quick, inexpensive, and useful; that’s how TieTop is.

TieTop is presented in the standard design plus six custom designs that you can choose from. You can also choose the customization that you want including your family photo, your son, your favourite team, anything;

Risks and challenges 

The greatest risk of TieTop, being a manually manufactured product, is actually the time spent manufacturing it.
But in this case, it has been adequately sized to make a production of more than half a million units a month, which could be higher if required by just adding more staff.

Indiegogo is guaranteed for the delivery on time and sized to cover for any peak or excess of activity.

Our goal would be to make TieTop a reality, that its everyday use was as common as hand/wet wipes.

Help us to make this possible, support our dream.
