Custom map or chart with your special location · Designs created from authentic nautical charts, topographic map
If you can’t easily get to your favorite place, you can at least keep it close by—on hand, actually—with a customized map beach tote bag. An image of your special location is created from nautical charts and topographical maps, and then silkscreened onto a durable canvas and nylon beach bag. (You’ll get a proof first to approve your personalized design.) Stainless steel grommets help air out the bag, too.
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.
