Do androids dream? With a little help from The Green Fairy, they do!
Our Android Absinthe necktie is part of our new Speculative Spirits: Liquor + Fiction Collection, inspired by vintage liquor labels with a science fiction and fantasy twist!
Absinthe was a favorite drink in the late 19th/early 20th century amongst writers and artists who sought its hallucinogenic effects to induce lucid dreams and unlock their creativity. We thought it would be neat if in the future, a version was created just for androids, artificial intelligences that don’t have a subconscious mind so they can’t dream but still want to experience what it’s like.
Our original Art Nouveau-inspired illustration is silk-screened by hand using silver ink onto a silky microfiber satin necktie. Color choices are:
We use only environmentally friendly water-based inks. The tie measures 58 inches long by 3.5 inches wide at the widest point. Your tie will come wrapped in a translucent vellum label displaying the title of the design, inside tissue paper with a raffia ribbon.
