Fearless. Non-provoking but determined. Stand independent. Little else needs to be said. Just know you echo the great thoughts of one of our founding fathers when he speaks of the ideal of us as a people and the independent liberty spirit that binds us:
“She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretensions of quarreling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenseless animal… Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?” -Ben Franklin
Libertate is not just a brand it’s a movement. We started a clothing brand to embrace what we love about America; liberty, freedom, and you. Our low-volume exclusive designs integrate the multi-colored fabric of America as inspiration and give it a kick with a modern edge. It’s our way of saying we believe in our founding ideals and proudly stand for them today.
The ties you see here are unabashedly American made. These handmade designs are conceptualized from people of like mind, then cut, sewn, screened, and hand-wrapped with care, right here in the great city of Chicago. While other companies churn out large quantities for the masses, we do the opposite so that you have something unique, made with passion and soul.
