NGC 4298 print bow tie - the perfect groomsmen gift for any astronomer.

NGC 4298 is a dusty spiral galaxy that just happens to be almost face-on when viewed from the Earth. We can tell it contains a lot of young stars because of it’s blue-ish tint; in general, young stars appear blue whilst old stars appear red.

Using high-resolution astronomical images, each bow tie starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the galaxy 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.
