The Independent Map Company (IDMC°) is a collective committed to celebrating and promoting a diverse range of independent businesses.

On our travels we have uncovered a wealth of creatives in cities across the world, all devoted to good quality design and individualism. IDMC° aims to support and to provide a platform for those unknown and hidden stores, cafes, bars and studios often found firmly off the beaten track.

We are intrigued by tales of craftsmanship and the unique histories that sit behind each independent business and we'd like to share that story. 

Contribute at IDMC°
