NGC 6397 tie and pocket square bundle - the perfect gift for any dapper 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 pocket square starts life on my computer so I can place the most interesting parts of the image in the middle of the square. I then get my designs custom-printed onto high-quality organic cotton in Europe. I make each item by hand (and sewing machine!) in my Parisian apartment, before carefully packaging them in a beautiful branded box so they’re ready to gift.

I also make a matching tie which you can find here, and you can buy the two together (and save a bit of money!) in this gift bundle.

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