fabMaps.

by Richard

I just came across fabMaps on Mighty Goods. Cloth maps! They seem to be such a cool solution to paper maps, which can only be folded so many times before they start falling apart (I just spent 20 minutes taping one of my old maps together a couple of weekends ago).

They’re made out of microfiber, which makes them quite durable, and also able to double as cleaning cloths for eyeglasses. They aren’t available for too many cities yet, but I’m definitely bookmarking them, because next time I need to buy a map, I hope that I can pick one of these up for the city that I’m going to.

    During the second world war, maps were often printed on silk so they could be easily stored, didnt wrinkle and could be hidden in small places (in the lining of clothes for example).
