Celebrate what makes your town great by dedicating a place on the wall for a premium artist-quality map of where you come from or where you live. Created by a small business out of Knoxville, Tennessee, all items are earth-friendly and made in small batches. Native Maps are beautiful, modern, minimalist hand-printed city maps with a throwback feel.

Native Maps designer and founder David Harman

David Harman founded Native Maps out of a love for his hometown. With a degree in painting, he began the brand as a healthy distraction from studio work and to see how well he knew Dallas, where he was born and raised. After 6 months of research, he drafted his first map. He now runs Native Maps with a small team out of his Knoxville, Tennessee studio.

From Atlanta to Seattle, Native Maps carry 40+ city maps from across the US, with each map a schematic work of art that accurately represents the city's neighborhoods. Each map is vetted for accuracy by a team of locals and includes all neighborhoods within the city boundary.

Available in a selection of fashionable and vibrant colors these maps work as contrasting or complementary elements against a variety of decor. They also make a great, tasteful and inexpensive gift this holiday season.

The city maps are screen printed by hand on heavyweight art-quality matte paper. The brand is proud to be Climate Neutral Certified in an earth-friendly studio that measures, reduces, and offsets its carbon footprint.

  • Features acid-free, thick cardstock-weight paper (100 lbs.)
