HOOP MAP ~ mid century vintage atlas map, strengthened and framed with vintage wooden embroidery hoop

ORIGINAL - no two maps are the same
VINTAGEINCLINATION - home of the first original hoopmaps on etsy

this. HOOP MAP. details.
Australia and the Pacific in a deep rich aqua emerald green. The colours are beautifully rich and bright! Gorgeous hung in an office, living room or home studio. Can be hung directly onto a nail or narrow hook. String or ribbon can easily be threaded from the hanger if you want a different way to hang.

size: total size 7 1/4" (18.5cm) across, 7 3/4" (19.8cm) high including hanger, depth of frame almost 1/2" (1cm).This is a little larger than most of my hoopmaps which are generally approx 6" diameter.

circa: atlas 1960

A new idea from VintageInclination combining gorgeous antique maps with vintage wooden embroidery hoops! Combining the rustic natural feel of the hoops with original old maps creates a wonderful ambiance of warmth from the past. On the practical side the framed map is ready to hang immediately! Each Hoop Map is an original map - no two will be the same. I love how the maps and frames are transformed once combined together!

To the best of my awareness you will not find anything like this on Etsy...perhaps beyond. I have researched and cannot find anything similar! So, you will be receiving an original vintage map turned into a unique contemporary creation (by hand by me) ready to hang. Being vintage maps and frames they have little vintage quirks and marks from age.

.how. HOOP MAPS. are. made.
First I search the world for vintage wooden embroidery frames! Then I choose maps from my large archive of original vintage maps. Not all maps are suitable to make hoop maps due to variations in paper, size, shape.
Next comes a secret process to get the paper so neatly on the two piece vintage embroidery frame! don't worry - no chemicals are involved. I construct these by hand in my studio. Once the paper is inside the frame and the frame is firm I trim the excess so the back is neat. The paper is very tightly fit in the frame!
Finally, the front of the map is gently painted with a clear satin coating to add protection and strength. Once dry the Hoop Map is ready to hang!
