Back in 2012, Neighborwoods came to life from the love of vintage maps and hand lettering. All of our original neighborhood map designs were created by Aymie Spitzer, while she was a designer at Hyperakt, an independent design studio based in Brooklyn who incubated our first collection.
Today, we are a small but mighty team working hard to bring city pride into your home with our engraved coaster collection and custom branded gifts. Based in San Diego and produced and shipped from Miami, all of our products are engraved in American birch wood.
With minimal streaking and a smooth, uniform texture, American birch is the perfect wood to show off our detailed city maps, illustrated landmarks from around the world, and unique branded designs, featuring company logos. It's fine grained and pale coloring gives all our products an elegant and clean look. Plus, naturally has a fresh woodsy scent.
