It's such a perfect idea: Embroider a blanket with a map of your neighborhood or city. Brooklynite Emily Fischer handcrafts these silk duipioni blankets with a map of your choosing, and she's willing to customize her work to suit your preferences. From her site:
Custom Soft Maps can be designed and constructed at any scale: the small town you grew up in, the city or country you're lonely for, or the college campus where you met your mate.The designer also clearly states that her blankets are meant for everyday use (in the crib, on a picnic) but we'd be far more inclined to hang a piece like this on the wall.
@ Haptic Labs, $600 (crib quilt) to $3200 (queen-sized quilt)
