Martha's Vineyard Cork Map, 8" x 10"
No place on earth creates picturesque summer getaways quite like Martha’s Vineyard, so it’s no surprise that this island community is beloved by people worldwide. The pristine white beaches, secluded homes, and windy bluffs make Martha’s Vineyard a perfect getaway for families, couples, and celebrities, so what’s stopping you?
The island was initially inhabited by the Wampanoag tribe, who dubbed the island Noepe, meaning land amid the streams. Martha’s Vineyard is only accessible by boat or plane, adding to the secluded feel of the island. Although thousands of people visit each year, housing prices — 96% higher than the national average — only add to the upscale feel of Martha’s Vineyard.
Our nautical wood map of Martha’s Vineyard begins with a block of high-quality cork. An artist uses the measurements from a bathymetric chart to determine the depth of the water around the island and then carefully etches each topographical line into the surface of the cork. A piece of laser-cut Baltic birch in the exact shape of the island is placed onto the cork, adding additional depth to the wood chart. Points of interest and other destinations are engraved into the wood’s surface, adding the perfect complement to the etching in the cork.
