ARTEFACT II : COLD WAR NAVIGATION MAPS

Great British Designer Face Coverings

During these challenging times, we’ve learnt to dig deeper into our material archive. Originally manufactured in a climate of fear and uncertainty, we’ve reimagined these original 1960's cold war navigation maps into a new source of function - from fear to beauty. First produced by the Royal Air Force in the event of conflict with the East, we’ve transformed 1 map into 6 items with zero waste.⁠ The only things we add are zips, thread, tape, grosgrain and cargo parachute material for strength.

As with our first ARTEFACT project, our intention with this is simple; we're only going to make the items that people need; only RÆMADE, only with zero waste. ⁠We have 10 original maps in total, enough to make 60 items. So once they're gone, they're gone.

⁠Available for pre-order, ready to ship in 2 to 4 weeks.⁠

Please note these have now sold out.
