X marks the spot where a surprise gift has been hidden on these urban treasure maps printed onto silk scarves by Dutch studio Kind of Moving.

Kind of Moving printed colourful plans of Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Paris and Ghent onto silk squares and marked on each the location of a treat, concealed with the help of friends that live locally.

"We talked to friends about the idea of the scarves and they were willing to help, so we found great places and those became hidden locations in the cities," Kumi Hiroi of Kind of Moving told Dezeen.

Each scarf uses a simple scheme of two or three colours so building and street layouts are clearly distinguishable, with water highlighted in a shade of blue. "We wanted to use soft colours which we really love, but for the next scarves we are considering use stronger colours," said Hiroi.

The designers hope to extend the range of cities included in the collection by enlisting the help of more collaborators in various places. The scarves come in two sizes and are printed in the Netherlands.

    These scarves are amazing, the fact that these are aerial graphic maps of major cities makes the scarf even more personal if you live there! Great idea.
