can be personalised
A made-to-order personalised vintage map printed on fine cotton, framed in a waxed beech wood embroidery hoop and hand-embroidered.
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. The perfect cotton-wedding anniversary gift and notonthehighstreet.com's 2016 Product of the Year in the Anniversary Gifts category.
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, 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.
Choose from a heart or a house embroidery. I generally try and place the heart/house off centre in the hoop. 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 of 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.
You can ask me a question or submit an image before purchase via the 'ask seller a question' button or after purchase via the 'order enquiry' button.
Maps are printed onto 100% cotton and embroidered with 100% cotton threads.
The hoop is waxed beech wood. The hoop is backed with card to hide any stitching on the reverse.
Please hang out of direct sunlight to avoid any fading and keep away from water - the ink is not waterproof.
15.2cm diameter (if date or initials are added, then 17.8cm diameter).
