Bentwood Box Silk Tie by Artist James Johnson. The tie design is the artist's interpretation of the Tlingit Lákt (Bentwood Box), a storage container that was traded up and down the Northwest coast.
James Johnson was born and raised in Juneau, AK. He belongs to the Tlingit Ch’áak’ Dakl’aweidi Clan (Eagle Killerwhale). He taught himself the fundamentals of Tlingit formline design, and traditional carving. James’s strong ancestral history led him to purse the Tlingit art form.
Made from 100% silk and designed in Canada, the tie measures 57" x 3" and is complemented with the artist's signature on the back. The Bentwood Box Tie comes packaged in its very own matching gift box.
