FIGS was created to provide couture neckwear at ridiculously affordable price points in order to positively impact children around the globe through our threads for threads initiative.
We offer affordable luxury neckwear that serves a global purpose to educate children in need without ever asking you to sacrifice cost or compromise your style. For every tie sold, FIGS gives a school uniform to a child in need.
In 2008, our founder Heather Hasson traveled throughout Africa and came face to face with many of the country’s impoverished children. Hungry for an education – many wore rags, if nothing at all. Knowing she needed to help them receive uniforms so that they could attend school, she created FIGS!
Education empowers children with the knowledge and voice to realize their dreams. You buy a tie and FIGS will give an entire uniform to a child in need we call it threads for threads. Now this is COOL.
Uniting an impassioned interest for ties and pocket squares with the desire to promote global education, FIGS founder Heather Hasson breathes social consciousness into classic style. Mused by a mélange of experience tracing the plains of northern Kenya to the avant-garde ateliers of New York and Rome, Miss Hasson fuses her love of fashion with the promise of building confidence through education, one awesome tie at a time.
