Designer Alyce Santoro revamps the classic neck tie in a musical way by recycling old cassette tapes and using the tape as fabric. The sonic fabric is made up of 50% reused cassette tape and 50% woven coloured thread.

The cassette tape ties are geared towards New Yorkers, as the original tapes were rescued from the streets of New York City. The coolest part about Alyce Santoro's cassette tape ties is they actually relay audible sound when run over with a tape head! Stats for Cassette Tape Ties Trending: Older & Chilly
