Are you still looking for a unique holiday gift? Well how about a wearable map.
It may sound strange but it’s becoming a bigger trend.
People are now putting maps on bags, phones, shirts and skirts.
Places like Transit Tees in Chicago design and sell clothing highlighting Chicago maps.  They sell t-shirts with CTA rail lines, hoodies showing the rails in Illinois and even earrings highlighting Chicago’s streets.

And if you want to get really discrete and detailed, the website Monochome let’s you zoom in on any Chicago neighborhood to create a one of a kind skirt or shirt to show your hometown pride.

But the mapping trend doesn’t stop with clothing. The CTA actually goes beyond that. Online, it offers iPhone cases, neckties, lunch bags and one of its most popular items, a shower curtain of the CTA map.

Like others, CTA says it offers the items as a way for people to show off their civic pride in a completely unique way.
