Add a touch of the surreal to your outfit with The Metamorphosis Tie, inspired by the classic novella by Franz Kafka.

Our original design features a quote from the story:

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was laying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of which the bed quilt could hardly keep in position and was about to slide off completely. His numerous legs, which were pitifully thin compared to the rest of his bulk, waved helplessly before his eyes.”

Hidden within the body of the quote is a trail of capital letters that spell out "METAMORPHOSIS".

A unique gift for classic literature lovers, writers, and aficionados of the strange and unusual.

Each tie is screen printed by hand using silver ink onto a silky microfiber satin necktie. Color Choices are:

Olive Green

We use only ecofriendly water based inks for printing. The tie measures 57 inches long by 3.25 inches wide at the widest point (the standard length and width for a tie). Your tie will come wrapped in a translucent vellum label displaying the title of the design, inside tissue paper with a raffia ribbon.
