Map print clothing

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Monochome, a new service brought to you by Rachel Binx, lets you make custom clothes printed with maps. It’s not just major cities though. No that’s for chumps. Using OpenStreetMap data, you select a location, choose the style of map, and pick your clothing item, and you’ve got your custom map print to wear. You can currently choose among a tank top, pencil skirt, flare skirt, and t-shirt.

Get your order in this week to ensure you receive your item for Christmas. Even if you’re not looking to get anything, it’s kind of fun to play around with the interface that lets you create an item.
