Girl&Bird - obsolete maps to personalised accessories

Girl&Bird is an accessories label created by british designer & maker, Annah Legg.

Girl&Bird's Cartography Collection was founded in 2014, with the aim to create personalised products that remind you of your most loved and special places. All pieces are lovingly hand designed and handmade by Annah in her studio in Bristol.

As well as offering a range of the UK’s most loved locations, Girl&Bird can personalise any products in the range to feature a product that’s special to you. With our collection of maps, that numbers over 300, we’ve got the whole of the UK covered in both a rustic, earthy colour palette, and a mid-century modern style in bright, primary colours.


The cartography collection was born from a belief that we have a strong, and undeniable tie to ‘places’ - be they where we grew up, went to university or spent the best holiday of our lives. These ‘places’ are too important to us to be confined to a screen. Google maps and sat-navs have removed us from the tactile experiences that maps provide.

Girl&Bird combines the romanticism of an old maps with a passion for products that can be used and loved on a daily basis. In repurposing these once essential objects, the cartography collection captures their beautiful colours and fascinating place names, triggering memories of special towns for the owner.


Girl&Bird's extensive collection of maps means that we are able to feature any location in the UK, in both a traditional, and a more modern style. The high level of personalisation makes our products perfect for housewarming, wedding and birthday gifts - or a treat for the homesick to itchy-footed! And don't forget - traditionally the second wedding anniversary gift is cotton - all Girl&Bird products are printed onto 100% panama Cotton
