The world in my home

As part of an activity for my Design Thinking course (U101), we had to create a map with markers to indicate the countries of origin of various items of food, clothing and others. This is my map:

It was so interesting to look through labels and find out where things come from! I knew we'd end up with a lot of stuff from China but clothes from Hungary? Trousers from Jordan? Books made in Dubai??

I did have a few non surprising items like maple syrup from Canada, a hawaiian print dress from (where else?) Hawaii and toys made in China but it is still very interesting and something to think about...

(The full map with details is here.)
