Bespoke Post, a subscription-based e-commerce startup offering a hilariously titled “Box of Awesome” (no, not that one – Bespoke Post is for grown-ups), is today announcing having closed on $850,000 in seed funding, led by Warby Parker and Bonobos investor, Great Oaks VC. Also participating in the round, which actually closed last fall, were 500 Startups, Brad Harrison Ventures, 1-800 Flowers’ strategic investing arm, and several angel investors. And, as of Monday, the company is expanding into Canada.

A torus is a mathematical surface with a hollow doughnut shape. Designing a pattern so that multiple line segments are shown on a curved surface, such as that of a torus, is not easy. To distinguish between the line segments emanating from a dot, each segment had to have a different slope.
Those slopes had to be modified in a manner consistent with the curvature of the torus in order to maintain the 7-fold symmetry. Added to this, the fact that the dots were of nonzero height and width made slope calculations even more difficult.
The Möbius band above, knitted from hand-spun wool/silk yarn, is designed to be worn as a scarf. The graph edges are more clearly defined here because the object is larger and thus the mesh contains a greater number of stitches.
