sonic fabric

How cool is this stuff? Sonic Fabric is woven from 50% recycled prerecorded audiocassette tape and 50% cotton. Not only does it look amazing but if you draw a tape head over the surface of the fabric the sounds recorded on the tape can be heard. Pictured above are some silk screened flags by the artist, John Fishman, made from a collection of his favourite songs. The fabric is available made up into messenger bags and flags and what-not, but is also available as swatches and by the yard: “Sonic fabric is currently available by the yard in solid black and in a jewel-toned stripe. Yards are 60″ wide with curly tapeloops at the selvedges. Custom colors can be created by varying the cotton or polyester thread used in the warp.” Imagine your next quilt singing to you! (and possibly being a bit scratchy too). (via swissmiss)
