This limited edition Detroit quilt details the most fascinating city in the U.S.: the birthplace of the American auto industry and the middle class, the home of Hockeytown and Motown, and the site of major urban renewal projects that will undoubtedly transform the identity of the city once again. This map covers Detroit proper (not the suburbs): Downtown, Corktown, Eastern Market, Lafayette Park, and parts of New Center, Indian Village, Belle Isle, Mexicantown and Windsor. Each quilt is entirely hand-stitched with a unique, steel-blue thread and made in collaboration with fair-labor partners in India. Fits a full to king-sized bed.
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.
