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. The word haptic refers to the sense of touch, and everything they design is meant to inspire meaningful connections through that sense.
