It’s mid-afternoon, you lie down on your sofa for a power nap and pull your pillow close. You’re off to dream land, and there are no maps of dreamland, but that doesn’t mean your pillow can’t have a map on it. Vintage Map Co. is dedicated to making vintage Canadian map pillows. Owner and pillow crafter Helen Hawketts started her family business back in 2010. She always enjoyed browsing through pictures of vintage maps. One day Helen stumbled upon a 1932 roadmap of Prince Edward County, which inspired her to produce her unique Canadian vintage map pillows. She has over 40 different map pillows leading to places all over Canada.
All pillows are made by hand in Helen’s Toronto studio or Prince Edward County farmhouse. They are produced on vintage-style linen pillowcases with 100% down-filled inserts. Pillows offer different colours, so they’re easy to match with your current decor, whether they are used in your living-room or bedroom. In addition to pillows, Helen offers an assortment of vintage map tea towels. For more information and to see all of Vintage Map Co’s products visit https://vintagemapco.com/
