Couch Material: Soft Cities

Thanks for your topic suggestion Jeroen! These map blankets are great. Especially since it started snowing again here in Amsterdam! Oh well. It is not that bad if you cuddle up under one of these blankets and wait for spring to arrive…

Soft Cities is a San Francisco-based company that sells blankets and napkins featuring a map of your favorite location. You can pick the location yourself, Soft Cities makes the map using open source data provided by Open Street Map (Soft Cities collaborates with Stamen Design,, and Cloudmade, under the creative commons license SA-by-SA).
Oh and as said, they also do ‘ mapkins’. Love it!
