Sonic Fabric Ties

All these products are obviously from recycled materials.  However, what makes them unique is that the material they are derived from is not masked or hidden.  With the pool ball earrings the original design creates a unique color blocking and the minimalistic asterisk of a computer key makes a bold ring.  My favorite definitely has to be the Sonic Fabric Neckties.

This design collaboration between designer Julio Cesar and Sonic Fabric is an innovative improvement to the standard men’s necktie.  They are woven from 50% recorded audio cassette taps and 50% colored, polyester thread.  If you run a tape head over the tie it actually creates a sound collage.  I had my doubts, but the site lead me to a video demonstration.

If you are really into this concept like I was check out the sound example and video of how the fabric is made.
