Maps & City Illustrations

Maps; They get you from place to place and remind you of all of the places you’ve been. They’re both beautiful and educational. On our designer’s inspiration trips they’re constantly sketching the beautiful places around them – whether it’s a floral pattern they find in a market or a design they’ve spotted on city tiles. We thought it would be fun to round up a few of our favorite hand drawn maps and illustrations. Don’t forget to bring along a sketch book on your next trip! Have sketches from past trips? We want to see! Send images to blog@teacollection.com.

Congratulations to the Moore Family!

Remember this?

We’re so happy to announce that the Moore family will be traveling to South Africa in 2014!

Andrew, 10 & Jonathan, 5

“Everyone is really looking forward to our trip next Spring Break in South Africa. My 5 year old asked how he was going to be able to go to the bathroom on the flight… I guess it’s been too long since we took a long family vacation!”

Congratulations again and we can’t wait to hear about your trip!
