NGC 3324 bow tie

NGC 3324 bow tie


NGC 3324 print bow tie - the perfect groomsmen gift for any astronomer.

This tie shows one of the coolest sections of the cluster NGC 3324. The blue areas are occupied by young, hot stars, whilst the red sections contain dust which ‘reddens’ the light that passes through it.

Using high-resolution astronomical images, each bow tie starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the nebula on the ‘bow’ part of the bow tie. I then get my designs custom-printed onto high-quality organic cotton in Europe. I make each bow tie by hand (and sewing machine!) in my Parisian apartment, before carefully packaging it in a beautiful branded box so it's ready to gift.

All my items are beautifully finished and are 100% hand made by me in my Paris studio.
