Royalton Recorder, North Royalton, Ohio - Son Inspires Family To Launch H-Bomb Ties
North Royalton residents, John and Tera Chmura love and care for their ten-year-old son Harrison. He was born with Down Syndrome and also has Autism. “We knew that finding employment when he became an adult would become difficult,” said John Chmura. “So my wife and I decided to create something on our own – a business. Harrison has always loved bow ties and we thought why not create a business around something he already loves.” H-Bomb ties was created.
The founders of H-Bomb Ties are the parents of Harrison. Harrison has inspired them to create the company as a landing place for him to work for years to come. Harrison, who is also nicknamed H-Bomb, has down-syndrome and autism. They created H-Bomb Ties to secure long term future employment for their sweet little boy. They also hope to employee others alike as the company grows.
I am glad that I found you. Your ties are well made, well priced, and in the process I get to play a small role in helping kids. That is a win all around. Keep it up, and I will be back to buy more ties.
I bought this for my husband to wear throughout April (and of course the rest of the year!) He received so many compliments on it from people. The color is the perfect shade of blue. Such a great purchase!
Thanks for that great review, Kate. We're so glad your husband likes the tie!
This bow tie and color scheme goes with just about everything. I have to stop myself from using it so frequently because of that fact. Materials are also spot on and gets easier to knot/tie as you use the tie more (like all bow ties).
Thanks for this review! We'd have to agree.. this tie is so versatile its hard not to go back to it time and time again.
