About Us

In 1963, 17-year-old Alan Yawitch started work as an apprentice knitted school tie mechanic. From those small beginnings Alan, together with his wife Rene, established Tie & Badge International in 1978.

Our success lies in our focus and today, 39 years later, Tie & Badge International is the leader in the school, uniform and corporate tie industry. It is now a second-generation family business run by Alan’s daughter Cherie and her husband, Lawrence, and still carries the tradition of quality, service and price.

Our core capability of responding to our client’s diverse requirements in a highly efficient manner has led us to be the leading supplier within our products markets. We have our own in-house design department and we’ll work closely with you to ensure that you are getting the professional advice and products that you are looking for.

We use a dye sublimation process when printing our products as opposed to screen printing. Sublimation employs a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto fabric. This ensures a superior product where the printing gives a rich and long lasting color that will not fade or peel off.

Most of our clients have worked with us for many years and are testimony to our strong work ethic and values. We believe in right first time and our entrenched values fosters lifelong partnerships with our clients.

We are a certified Level 4 BEE company.
