Home Front Vintage remakes genuine silk ‘escape and evasion’ maps into covetable gifts and accessories for people who value British heritage and provenance with a contemporary twist.
Home Front Vintage specialises in rescuing genuine ‘escape and evasion’ silk maps that pilots and Special Forces would have hidden inside their uniforms in case they needed to escape from enemy territory during WW2 and the Cold War. We use pieces of these maps and remake them into fabulous gifts and accessories; We are often asked how we print the maps onto silk; WE DON’T. All our products are made from the genuine maps printed onto silk by the military during the 1940s and 1950s. Find out more by watching the short film below.
