Welcome to Home Front Vintage

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 damaged pieces of these maps and remake them into fabulous gifts and accessories; perfect for people who value British history and provenance. 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. We also now make other products from genuine vintage items and you can see our full range in our online shop.
