Gorgeous nerdy textiles

Detroit's Cyberoptix make hundreds of beautiful, nerdy textiles: linen library due-date scarves (also available as silk ties); bandana print neckties; chemical warfare ties; civil defense med-kit scarves; notebook-paper silk pocket squares (also scarves) and felted wool neckties -- all made to order in a wide variety of colors!

  1. Interesting. I'm not sure when I would wear them or use for decoration, but very interesting concept.

  2. I have a few ties from Cyberoptix, and they really are top-notch. International shipping to Australia was worth it. Good quality fabric, stunning art, crisp printing -- these ties always garner appreciative comments when I wear them on special occasions. Cyberoptix has a broad range that's highly subjective, so they won't all suit you; my advice is to pick a few that match your quirks/taste/interests.

  3. First the Star Trek toile tote and now a D20 pashmina. Time to re-write my budget for this month.

  4. The chemical weapons tie makes me slightly regret that I loathe (and therefore avoid) ties.

  5. May I say how refreshing it is to see the adjective "nerdy" attached to something not (completely) rife with pop culture imagery?
