Wear You Live – City Fabric

By August 1, 2011 One Comment

We love ‘Wear you Live’ by City Fabric – in short its a series of products from T-Shirts to Tote Bags, Prints, Cushions printed with a figureground map. This type of map is commonly used in the fields of city planning, design and architecture to study density and development patterns by depicting all of the buildings in a city as opposed to the streets, parcels or transit lines With 13 cities across the USA planned, the concept is currently raising funds via KickStarter:

Its one of the those ideas where you sit back and think ‘wow why didn’t i think of that’, we hope the project will roll out on a global basis soon as they raise funds, after all a London Tote Bag or Urban Cushion is surely essential.

Head over to the Wear you Live page on Kickstarter to help them get going.
