Soft Cities: Custom Map Textiles using Open Street Map data

SoftCities pulls open data together with fashion design and lets people buy blankets and napkins based on Open Street Map data. The most exciting part about all of this (aside from a percentage of the profits going to the Open Street Map project, and that we get to work with Nikki Gunn on a project) is that people are now contributing to OSM specifically to have those roads and stores show up on tangible objects that they can see and hold.
