A made-to-order personalised vintage map printed onto fine cotton, framed in a stunning solid white-washed wooden frame and hand-embroidered with coloured threads.
A fabulous, original way to mark a special location or occasion, such as a wedding, a new home, where and when your child was born or perhaps a honeymoon.
Multiple locations can be mapped and linked up to remember multi-destination trips, such as backpacking routes or honeymoon travels. A quirky and unique gift, especially for second, or cotton anniversaries. They look fabulous when a few are collected and hung as a group.
I will source a vintage map and liase with you until we have a digital proof that you are happy with and, once approved, make the order (please allow 14 days from approval of digital proof to dispatch).
The colour and style of the map itself will vary depending on what I am able to source for your location.
I generally try and place hearts off centre on the map. Dates and initials are available in two different fonts - please see images for an idea of how they look (one is more contemporary, one more traditional).
I have a huge variety of colours available for the embroidery threads - please do be as descriptive on your preference as you wish! I can try and match colours if you can provide images, eg your wedding colours, or I am happy to suggest what will work best with the map I have sourced.
The frames feature a double mountboard, so the stitching doesn't get squashed by the glazing. The outer mountboard is generally white and the inner mountboard stone, however they are available in a wide variety of colours (please see the last image in the gallery for swatches), so if you would like one of the other colours please specify in the drop down.
Maps are printed onto 100% cotton and embroidered with 100% cotton threads. The frame is solid wood with a white wash paint finish. The frame features a double card mount and is glass glazed.
Overall frame size is 42cm. Map/aperture size is 17.8cm.
