Pandora’s Cluster print bow tie - the perfect groomsmen gift for any astronomer.

Pandora’s Cluster is the result of at least four or five smaller galaxy clusters merging. Astronomers are known for their epic banter, so the folks in charge of naming the resulting space mess decided to call it ‘Pandora’s Cluster’ because “so many different and strange phenomena were unleashed by the collision”.

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