Embroider this beautiful map of Cambridge based on Ekta Kaul’s original drawing highlighting historical buildings, parks and architectural icons.

Cambridge Map Embroidery Kit is the perfect personal project or gift for a loved one. Ekta’s hand-drawn Cambridge map highlights some of the city’s much-loved iconic buildings and parks and invites you to personalise it by adding your own favourite spots and memorable places. Names of all 31 colleges have been lovingly hand-lettered along the borders. The colour palette for the map is inspired by the tranquil spaces and colours of Jim & Helen Ede’s former home, Kettle’s Yard, one of Ekta’s favourite places in Cambridge.
The kit is presented in a beautiful gift box and includes everything you will need to embroider – an original Cambridge map printed on a characterful linen-cotton measuring 30 x 42 cm (11.5 x 16.5 in) approx, an embroidery hoop, needles and 5 skeins of embroidery threads. A beautifully illustrated stitch guide is also included to get you started. Also included is an invitation to a live tutorial with Ekta.
The kit is designed and made at Ekta’s studio in London.
