Sonic fabric ties look proper, conservative, and pretty darn classy. But they live a secret double life, woven from musical sounds and inspired by Tibetan mantras, and are actually audible if you run a tape head over them. They’d make the perfect Christmas gift for a man who’s an office superhero on the outside and a rock star on the inside. And these ties are also a pretty fantastic idea for groomsmen attire/gifts.

Check out this beautiful, hypnotic video that tells the story of sonic fabric. It explains why I’m a little bit in love with Alyce Santoro (aka Alyce B. Obvious), the artist who created sonic ties. She an absolute freakin’ genius.

Alyce makes art out of the most unlikely repurposed objects, like napkins and ice cream cones. Yeah, ice cream cones.
