Each Soft-Map Blanket can be uniquely customized- ranging from having your house/apartment detailed on the blanket, or where your child goes to school. I personally love the idea of where you and your significant other first met. The makers of Soft-Map Blankets include the hand stitching of street names, compass rose and scale marker on each blanket.

Most Soft-Maps are made with dupioni silk and with an inner layer made from organic cotton.

Nice idea, I wonder if they could stitch elevation contours for us not so urban-like people... :)

Make it a 3D relief type map with more stuffing where the mountains are.

Cool effect but I wonder if you can create shaded relief. ;)

Maybe you'll see me dragging mine around at the NACIS 09 in October.
