Heart-shaped maps

Mark your love on a vintage map this Valentine’s Day

Published on January 28th 2011.


Heart-shaped maps

Ahh sweet memories.

It could be the place you and your partner first locked lips, the location of your first holiday together or the street where you first shared a home. Like Posh and Becks, the place where you conceived your first child may be memorable, although not many of us will go to the extent of naming our newborn after it, a la Brooklyn Beckham. There are however, more subtly sweet ways to commemorate these places.

Bombus is an online retailer made up of a team of art graduates who specialise in ‘creating something from nothing’. Their best selling products to date are these thoughtful bespoke map heart gifts.

The hand-glazed, hand-cut, giant heart-shaped maps are made from real vintage map collections – not printouts. They come complete with age spots and natural folds.

Customers select their location of choice, which can be anywhere in the world. The map is then hand-cut into the shape of a heart and mounted on textured watercolour paper.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, these are a great alternative to chocolates or flowers and are particularly handy for those who don’t have a knack for arts and crafts.

Bespoke map hearts cost £38 each and are also available framed upon request. For more information please visit www.bombus.co.uk.
