Accurate maps help keep ships safe at sea. In the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, maps called "portolan charts" recorded the accumulated experience and wisdom of generations of Mediterranean seafarers. Portolan charts were practical, no-nonsense tools made for the use of sailors who sailed "great waters."
These leggings feature a portolan chart by Luis Teixeira. It includes Europe with British Isles and portion of Scandinavia.
