Fremantle recruit’s tie business goes gangbusters


The business venture of new Dockers Liam Henry and Isaiah Butters has hit new heights.

The Fremantle recruits run a tie business with close mate Dontay Bolton and mentor Michael Ralph which over the past few days has run out of stock.

Coinciding with Henry being taken by the Dockers at pick 9 last Wednesday night and Butters being rookie drafted just days later, Tied To Culture has received so many orders for its indigenous art themed ties that there is now a three-to-four-week wait.

The business co-founders played together for WAFL club Claremont and will hopefully get to continue that partnership in purple for the Dockers.

“Liam’s someone who, when he really puts his mind to something, he keeps going that way,” Butters told

“He’s a good bloke, we’ve played club footy at Claremont and school footy over the years. Our relationship has grown stronger and stronger.

“(Playing together at Fremantle) that’s just another part of the story. I’ve been playing footy with him since year eight.

“That would be something bigger and more special I reckon.”
