SplashMap: Never failing maps on every adventure

Will uses his SplashMaps in rescue and mountain leadership around the world

Using robust performance fabrics a SplashMap textile map on our Pro Weatherpoof fabric is always with you. In your palm as you progress, in your fists against the wind and even shrugging-off the worst rain or snow without need of a carry case. They’re easily stuffed into pockets and bags for instant access and never suffer battery death, malfunction, mushing, bleeding or the hell of fussy folding.

Mark your route-up with a washable felt tipped pen and when you’re done stuff it in the washing machine. Confidence delivered with ease!

Our Pro Fabric is a specially selected light-weight and dense woven polyester which is both breathable and shrugs off water. 

Each one includes a key for simple identification of the main navigational features and guidance on washing. We thoughtfully stitch this onto the edge of the map to optimise map space.

A SplashMap is 72 x 72cm finished with edge stitching and includes the graticules and grid numberings you’d expect of great map (OS Grid in Great Britain and local national grids for all other countries).

Mask: Ethical social distancing with maps on

Nicola Meadley and our MD, David Overton, agree to share the latest map tech at Keswick Mountain Festival

Our Masks are the unique and ethical alternative to those thin and non-biodegradable disposable masks we see in our hedgerows. Following the best scientific advice, our masks consist of 2 durable, washable and reusable layers stitched together in the usual high quality SplashMaps way. A cotton layer on the face side is comfortable and adsorbent while the outer polyester gives a breathable durable layer to prevent the passage of viruses from the wearer.

Make your mask say something about you with our beautiful maps and the ability to include titles.

Each mask has a true-to-scale map 18 x 12cm with a title positioned to obscure the least detail.

Toggle Toob/ Toob Masks: Comfort and protection on the trail

Here’s mountain man Alan Hikes wearing our Sca Fell Toggle Toob

Upgraded from our Toob products, the toggled Toobs are designed both to show your love of an area, to navigate and to protect for dust, cold, wind and social distancing.

Using our highest quality ‘Iris” spandex, this SplashMap has a double layer (including a mesh inner) for added protection and comfort when worn over the face. Versatile to be used over the head or around the neck, this map textile format is easily adjusted for comfort and protection on the trail or when visiting the shops.

As well as our personalised options, why not consider our vibrant city designs to really make a mappy statement?

Each product is a stretchy 50cm in diameter and 36cm height entirely covered in true-to-scale map detail. The toggle and drawstring design necessitates a ‘U shaped’ cut away at the back of the product.

Tablecloths: Ethical textile map dining and planning in one

Ordnance Survey Personalised Tablecloths are just one of the many custom map formats you can create using our map maker. Simply choose the place you want, select one of the tablecloth formats and give a title if you wish. Simple!

Our tablecloths create inspirational opportunities to plan and remember shared experiences. Use yours to plan the days outings on a family holiday or to piece together a personal challenge over a series of meals. Or simply admire the beautiful work of the map designer!

Manufactured using our SplashTexTM recycled fabric, this is a truly ethical choice. A square tablecloth is made from 8 post-consumer plastic bottles, recycled into map textile fully within Europe. Originally designed for our customer Lush cosmetics, we believe this 100% recycled fabric is the only of its kind. Let’s keep the plastic where it belongs! We’ve converted disposable waste into beautiful long-term products. Buy one to keep plastics out of the oceans.

SplashTex has an attractive drape, is breathable, easily washable and more adsorbent than our Pro fabric.

2 sizes available: 130 x 130cm and 130 x 180cm (choose a long ‘portrait’ or wide ‘landscape’ layout).
