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. ;)

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

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