NGC 6397 tie

NGC 6397 tie


NGC 6397 print tie - the perfect groomsmen gift for any astronomer.

NGC 6397 is a globular cluster, which means that it’s a spherical collection of stars held close together by gravity. It’s one of the closest globular clusters to Earth which makes it ideal for science; in 2004 it was used to estimate the age of the Milky Way!

Using high-resolution astronomical images, each tie starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the cluster down the centre of the tie. I then get my designs custom-printed onto high-quality organic cotton in Europe. I make each 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.
