Got this for my mother-in-law for her 82nd birthday. She has been going do the Outer Banks for entire life. The map is nicely done and highlights so many places that she has visited. She loved it! Very unique and specialMore > < Less

Went over big.


Truly Amazing!

I swear I could actually navigate using the pillow I ordered! The colors are bright, with all navigation markers clearly noted. I can even read the depth of the water. The pillow is extremely well made, with no bleeding of the different colors. It is as clear as the Topography map we have.
I can not recommend this pillow enough! It is a steal-of-a-deal at its price!

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.
