her cloth is a map of the world, map of the world

okay, okay — one more textile post and i’ll give it a rest — but you see how it is with the blogging — you put what you like, right? i just need to mention these awesome maps that are made of cloth, from german designer dewa bleisinger. the easymap’s material is a multipurpose workhorse: it resists the damage, illegibility and aggravation of a folded map, while remaining weatherproof and extending its life span.

roll, crumple or fold it like a towel. stick it in your pocket or wear it as a scarf — however you work it, it’ll still be intact at the end of the day.

this piece will be presented at the tendence lifestyle fair in frankfurt august 24 – 28.

see dewa’s website for other excitement.

    hey sosser,

    i believe right now this map is a prototype, but since she is exhibiting at the trade fair in frankfurt, it may mean that it’s going into production now. i will keep you posted, and thanks for the comment!

    Dude, I think this is genius, so cute too.

  6. the scholar Says:

    hi michelle,

    wouldn’t it be cool to wear europe as a headscarf? i really hope she puts these into production and distributes them.
