Made for adventurers and discerning travellers, our maps are a real talking point in the home.
The Shipwrecked Frame
Inspired by driftwood huts on tropical islands in Southeast Asia, these unique signature frames of ours have derived from the very first upcycled pallet wood frames we made. Ten individual pieces of rustic wood hug the artboards, with narrow pieces on the front and wider pieces on the back. This unusual approach to framing gives a flush finish for memorabilia to hang nicely over the borders. We use sustainably produced FSC certified wood from British forests, finished with a selection of pleasing stains and colours. If you’d like a more bespoke frame, please contact us, we’re more than happy to oblige!
The meticulous design may go unnoticed, but these are skillfully and individually hand-pulled silkscreened maps, printed using water based inks for the finest detail and brightest colours possible on 100% sustainable cork, with a recycled pin-retaining softboard core. Designed with no location names our world map simply shows the longitude, latitude and equators, with country borders printed as finely as possible – so that at a distance you won't notice them, and up close you can see each country. They also feel great!
At 136cm x 76cm x 4cm (53.5” x 30” x 1.5”) and weighing around 11kg, they're not too heavy. They come with brass wall mounts, two screws and two wall-plugs to securely hang on a solid wall, PLUS 25 white flag pins to get you started, and if you’re an avid traveler you may want add few more to the order!
Please allow 4-6 weeks production time – from printing to framing, and shipping – each map is hand-made to order in Christchurch, England.
