Each piece from Cyberoptix Tie Lab looks like a bespoke necktie or elegant pashmina scarf. But with a deeper look, humor and attitude emerge from the hand-printed, original designs. These playful ties and scarves may showcase not-so-serious prints, but the fabric looks and wears beautifully. It’s carefully chosen by Cyberoptix and woven just for them. The packaging is made by hand, too. When we first met Founder Bethany Shorb in 2009, her mission was to liven up the field of boring neckties. She is still dedicated to injecting major personality into typically ho-hum accessories, making pieces that are expressive, often funny, and always attractive. Bethany and the rest of the creative crew at Cyberoptix are committed to their hometown of Detroit, working with dozens of local charities that benefit youth employment, schools, and transitional work programs. They are serious about giving back, and about creating uniquely lovely accessories with a wink.

    @Jan Hi there! We have over 275 designs catering to just about every enthusiast theme under the sun; The Grommet has carefully curated just a handful of 6 of our prints at this time to start. We encourage you to let The Grommet know that you'd like to see them carry more!

    These are so cool! People are going to...geek out...when they see me wearing one of these!

    P.S. U-S-A, U-S-A! Congratulations creating a great product and an even greater company!

    P.P.S. If I get the eye chart one and tack it to my wall, is that as good as going to the eye doctor? ;)

    @Wallace Thanks so much for believing in what we do. But of course! hahah.

    Okay...we're probably not really supposed to give out medical advice, and I'm here rocking the drug store reading glasses as I type... ;) However I think we might be qualified to give out fashion and home decor advice, and we think that is a win-win for sure.

    @John Good afternoon and thanks for looking! I bet if you let The Grommet know what themes you're after, they will be lovingly persuaded into carrying even more of our designs... as we have over 275 designs on our roster already, I bet they'd absolutely love to know what ones their customers are clamoring for the most.

    @sally Good afternoon - We know that humans come in lots of different shapes, so we do make ties in three adult and three children's sizes - I bet if you ask The Grommet support kindly, they might carry them on their site in time! :D

    @Keith I think that is a most fantastic plan there! We specialize in making ties for people who love and *love to hate* ties - I think you should take a chance....
