Sonic Fabric Tie
The ties are made of 50% polyester and 50% recycled audio-cassette tape which in addition to giving them a rather dapper look also gives them the unique quality of actually playing audio when you run a tapehead over the tie's surface. The retro style packaging comes with a quirky label which reveals that the tape used creates "collages of sound" which are "compiled as odes to life in New York City". An ideal gift for analogue devotees.
The ties come in black, blue and silver and cost £85 - check them out here.
