Swiss Army Tie

Not content with a single pattern, this tie by Anne Surkamp-Kramer of Germany has six or eight different patterns displayed in "windows" of various sizes. And instead of abutting each other in the usual patchwork style of multipattern prints, they are all set into a gray and white background pattern that resembles granite, or an animal print. All in all a fascinating tie that held my interest when a committee meeting could not. Anne Surkamp-Kramer is the head designer of, and also designs custom ties, if I understand correctly with my rudimentary German and Google's automatic translation. She also appears to run a business that sells flip-flops, wicker furniture, and Buddha statues. Naturally.
