The wildlife is grateful for your impeccable decorating taste.
1 MAP = 1 CHARITY
We pair each Royale Map with a local environmental charity.
For example, by purchasing the Royale Map of Hawaii, you help protect the Hawaiian coral reefs.
Royale Maps creates a real connection between you and the places you love.
21st century ornamental cartography.
We love old fashioned maps. They’re beautiful and exciting. But they’re also outdated.
Now, humans map the world with satellites and computers, and the time consuming art of hand-drawn ornemental maps has become a thing of the past.
Our mission is to bring ornamental cartography to the 21st century. Rather than scanning and printing antique maps, we are revisiting the old craft, with the help of up-to date satellite data and modern technology .
Sure, it takes weeks to hand-draw and illustrate a single map, but the result is something special and unique. That’s our tribute to the places we love.
We are thrilled to embark on such an exciting adventure and we hope that you’ll enjoy our work and look forward to connecting with cartographers, wildlife enthusiasts and interior decor addicts from all over the world.
GLAD TO MEET YOU!
We are the co-founders of Royale Maps.
Research & Cartography
Catherine is a prolific designer.
Passionate about creating, she enjoys the crafting process as much as the finished project.
She travels just the same, valuing the journey as much as the destination and that’s why her next goal is to buy herself a Moody 42 aboard which she hopes to travel to the places she will map out.
Born in Belgium, she studied fine art & the visual arts in Brussels, the UK and the US.
At Royale Maps, she researches the places, creates the maps and the illustrations.
Hand-drawing a single map usually spans over six to eight weeks.
Photography & Communication
Oli built his lifestyle around freedom so he could nurture his passions. Autodidact, he’s proficient in photography, videography, music production, web design and online marketing – skills that he channels into entrepreneurship.
Oli was born in France, but he has never lived in the same place for more than 5 years. This lifestyle led him to the Isle of Man, where he was inspired to co-found Royale Maps with Catherine – his biggest adventure yet.
When he travels, his focus is on exploring, discovering food and connecting with the wildlife.
At Royale Maps, he’s dedicated to communicating and growing the business.
