SplashMaps enter the Dragons’ Den!

Did you see it? – That moment when an original product is proposed to 5 Dragons of the business world…well yesterday one of our licensee’s appeared on the Dragons’ Den and presented wearable, washable fabric maps. @splashmaps is the creation of David Overton, previously Innovation Officer at Ordnance Survey. SplashMaps have been working with Geographers’ A-Z Map Company since 2015 to produce the London Visitors SplashMaps.

Though he put in a strong presentation he wasn’t successful in his crusade against the Dragons – you will find SplashMaps products via our website and in Lush Cosmetic stores as Knot-wraps.

Well done for taking on the Dragons and we look forward to continuing working with SplashMaps.
