The roots of the company Ella Bing were started out of necessity, to heal and to bring our family back together. And while life has a way of kicking you down while you're up and picking you up while you're down. None of us though that on Sept 1, 2010, our lives would be changed forever.

My little brother & only brother, Matthew, took his own life while living in Manhattan. 

Ella Bing is a family owned and operated company started in 2012. Taking the ideas of Matthew who loved having our very talented mother make him his bow ties. Sure, he could have bought his bow ties from anywhere, but he loved the fact that he knew they were special and made with love. 

It was, for this reason, Ella Bing was started, to keep the memory of a lost Son, brother, and Uncle, alive. Ella Bing has proudly teamed with the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, proudly donating 10% of every sale, once a quarter. 

The Kraus family along with Kim Randall and a host of others have started a hugely successful fundraiser called Beer and Bow Ties, in which over the past two years has raised nearly $40,000 for Suicide Prevention and Awareness. 

With our past experiences and our passion for creating quality products, that Matthew would have loved and worn himself we are pleased to serve the Tampa Bay community and make a difference in people's lives. And are passionate about raising awareness about suicide prevention and awareness.

Head turner!

This is my 2nd Ella Bing wooden tie and it again has surpassed my expectations. The gift set to include cuff links was an incredible value to boot. Every time I wear this collection, I have friends, colleagues, and students simply marvel and the beautiful, intricate, and classy design of these bow ties. These are a MUST have for the well-heeled gentlemen.

Great Service For A Great Tie

The service from Ella Bing was so great! Not only was the tie fantastic it came packaged in a cigar box. His cool is that?

Classic and unique

Very classic looking glasses with a modern edge and touch. The bands are different and with the wood and silver it makes them very versatile. I have worn them with a suit, shirt and jeans and to the pool. Works in all environments.


Clark was knowledgeable of the items in the store. A lot of the items are locally made , and the music was off the hook , the hats were beautiful . Nice atmosphere.
