Hand sewn and stitched world map for the Militant Guild of Rural Tailors.

Every country is made from a piece of premium quality menswear fabric originating from that specific country. British tweed, Indian Khadi cotton, French linnen, Chinese raw silk, Australian merino wool, Indonesian Ghingham.
The map – as legend says – is being used for centuries in the Guild to ratify and affirm the inner and inter-connectedness between Tailors during their rituals.
