The Scratch Map was invented by the design house Luckies of London in 2009. The idea was to create a map that could easily be customised for intrepid travellers and globetrotters to record their travels. The concept was an interactive scratchable map. Manufactured using high quality card, the Scratch Map features a top foil layer that can be scratched off to reveal a highly detailed geographical map beneath. Every Scratch Map is different, each with a different theme, whether it be the oceans, maps with countries, continents, landmarks, cuisine, or islands, there are now so many different varieties of Scratch Map, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
