Lost in the city? “Map” scarf to the rescue!

Women reading maps in Paris

Inspired by the silk escape maps issued to Allied airmen during WWII, Map Scarves are now available for fashion conscious travelers.

The silk gold-tone scarves feature detailed city maps of London, Paris, Rome, Venice, Berlin, Vienna, New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC. They “cover” all the major sights and attractions, along with a few off-beat ones, too.

They’re quirky yet practical. Should you get lost, simply consult your scarf!

The scarves are 100% silk with hand-rolled edges. They’re available in a choice of border colors and in two sizes: classic 33-inch squares and 21-inch neck squares.

They retail for $65 and are available online at their website.

PS: No surprise, the Paris scarf is the best seller!
