Skeleton Key Tie

Artist Statement: Escape Artist

Inspired by the rich lore surrounding the life of Harry Houdini, the Cyberoptix TieLab has once again partnered with All Purpose in Los Angeles to design a line of neckwear around this late-Victorian-era icon. Few know that Houdini began his career working in a necktie factory, so we couldn't be happier to carry on this homage!

A slight departure from our usual silkscreened ties, this limited edition series is handcrafted from the most luxurious heavyweight silk, each adorned with a unique, reclaimed antique skeleton key estimated to be at least 60-150 years old. The key is further restrained by hand-patinated, solid copper and solid brass chain that easily detaches for tying and cleaning.
