About Our Maps
Every Tides Out Maps truely is a labour of love. Crafted completely by hand, our maps are created by stacking layers of painted wood a top one another to give a 3D aesthetic. A carefully selected blue gradient adds to the feeling that you can see straight through the oceans surface.
To achieve a high level of precision, each layer of our maps are cut using a laser. The layers are then individually painted and assembled, all by hand. This is done right here in Aotearoa - New Zealand (we recently achieved our NZ Made cert!) Learn more about how they're made, and the materials we use.
