For those who grew up in the Upper Midwest, the Great Lakes are a continual source of wonder. Skipping stones on the coast of Lake Superior or cherry-picking in the Leelanau Peninsula, the folklore of the Lakes continues to grow with each generation. The Great Lakes quilt is a love letter to the Upper Midwest. Each throw-sized quilt is made by hand from 100% natural cotton; the hand-appliqued lakes are made of poly-silk.
Haptic Lab is a small design studio in Brooklyn, New York, known for their heirloom-quality quilted maps of cities and neighborhoods made in partnership with fair-labor partners in India, and handmade kites made in collaboration with Balinese artisans. The word haptic refers to the sense of touch, and everything they design is meant to inspire meaningful connections through that sense.
