You never need to be lost in Scotland again

At Urban Reivers HQ we are fascinated by maps. Maps are, after all, the way we interact with the world – where would we be without them? LOST is the answer. Hence our inspiration for Find Your Way Home, our line of map silk accessories. We were first inspired by the stories of WW2 escape maps, printed on parachute silk and smuggled behind enemy lines. They were the most prolific piece of escape and evasion kit during the war.

We decided to remake those maps using Scotland and heUrban Reivers Find Your Way Home mapsaded for the map library  at the National Library to find the perfect vintage map. There is no end to the colourful array of hand drawn and painted originals. Our favourite was Bartholomew, a map designer from Edinburgh during the early 20th century.

We’ve printed our maps on 100% Habotai silk – the closest to the parachute silk used in the original that we could find. We’ve even thrown in a compass. So, Aberdeen to Wigtown. John o’ Groats to Moffat, whether you live here already, your family have Scottish roots or you just love it up here, wherever you come from – you need one of these. Don’t get lost in Scotland.
