Perfect Pillow!


Absolutely love it! I sent address of our vacation lake home and description of lake area that I wanted included. They got it perfect first time they sent a draft. The fabric is high quality. Very well made. It is not a large throw pillow. It is as describe smaller throw pillow. I love it!More > < Less


The perfect present for the sailor in your family


Was looking for a unique present for my mom, a lifelong sailor and one of those "tough to buy for" people. This was the PERFECT solution. The pillow construction is sturdy, and the print cover is beautiful and exactly as described. A little pricey, but I come from a family of artisans, and I appreciate good craftsmanship. 5 stars!!!More > < Less




Very nice well made pillow/decor for the lake cabin. They nailed my request on the first design draft they sent to me for approval. Reasonable price for one of a kind functional decor.More > < Less


Great idea, Great product!


I ordered two different pillows and after a correction on one of them which was completely satisfactory, I must say that they were given as Christmas gifts which collected many oohs and aahs. I would definitely recommend their service for a truly unique gift.More > < Less




This pillow was a gift for my son who lives in Boston and sails. It was perfect and he really liked it!

About Not for Navigation

Your Happy Place

Everyone has a place they hold near and dear to their heart, and Not for Navigation turns that location into a customized, lasting memento.

Founder Heather Jernegan paired her printing background with a love of her favorite place—the New England coast—to start this collection of charming, map-printed textiles.

Heather takes whatever place you give her—whether it’s a specific street address or a broader coastline, neighborhood, or island—and then will select a nautical chart or topographical map that showcases that area beautifully. Not for Navigation will send the image to you for approval, then silkscreen it to enhance its details and colors.

Feature the place you spent summers as a child, or a honeymoon destination, or a birthplace—the choice is completely yours. Or you could turn a memorable location into a meaningful gift, like a customized pillow.

Each piece from Not for Navigation is as beautiful as it is personal. It’s worth creating a keepsake for any place that is so special.
