Recycled Cassette Tape Neckties: Audible Wear

by Lambert Varias

Alyce Santoro’s Sonic Fabric line of neckties not only look cool, but they should hold a special appeal for New Yorkers: they’re made using 50% colored thread and 50% cassette tape, and the latter has been recorded with “loops and samples collected on and under the streets of NYC.”

I take it New York is filled with sleeping monsters? Seriously though, this is an awesome idea, plus the neckties themselves look cpol. Alyce sells regular ($140 USD), medium ($120), and skinny ($90) neckties in various colors. Check them out along with Alyce’s other products at Supermarket.
