By Andrew Liszewski

Designed by Alyce Santoro and Julio Cesar, these rather dapper Sonic Fabric Neckties are made from 50% colored thread and 50% recorded audio cassette tape which means you can sacrifice an old Walkman to make a ‘sonic fabric reader’ (see the video below) allowing you to hear remnants of what was originally on the tapes.

The Sonic Fabric Neckties are available from Supermarket in black, dark brown and grey for $90 a pop, plus the cost of a Walkman if your curiosity gets the best of you.

  1. This is actually kind of cool, I can see how having the semi plastic of the tape woven into the thread can really increase the strength of the overall product. And why not have it make sounds while your at it??

  2. I agree, but it is sort of green. It's a good way to recycle something that no one is going to use anymore (or not too many people). It's just way to expensive.
