History of Cloth Maps

Maps have been drawn and printed on many different materials throughout history including paper, stone, skin and cloth. While paper became the dominant printing surface, cloth maps have remained part of our history since the eighteenth century, mainly used as souvenirs and travellers aids.

Early explorers needed to preserve their map as much as possible, especially when journeys were typically in damp conditions and lasted months or even years. One common method would be to wrap the map in cloth to keep it dry and out of the elements.

We can custom make whatever map you want, so please do get in touch if you cannot see the map you want to buy.
