Sonic TiesJust when you thought you’d heard it all, along comes “SONIC Fabric,” a strikingly beautiful and durable textile for a range of interior and fashion designs. Sonic Fabric has texture and feel of a light canvas with a mysterious sheen.

Every batch of Sonic Fabric is recorded with an intricate collage of sound prior to weaving. Sonic fabric emits sound when you run a tape head (the little thingy inside the tape deck that touches the tape) over it. Because the tape retains its magnetic quality through the weaving process, it acts as a big wide band of tape.

The invention was inspired by the use of small strands of cassette tape used as wind indicators, or “tell-tails,” used on sailboats, and by Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags inscribed with wind-activated blessings. Thus the wearable works of art are intended to emit good vibes into the vicinity of the wearer.
