Hand-Stitched City Quilts Are Made to Counter the Rapid Digitization of Daily Life

With winter just around the corner, now is a good time to take stock of what you've got packed away in the warm blanket department. If you're coming up short, these City Quilt throws from Haptic Lab can provide both warmth and style. Replicating the age-old tradition of quilting, the Brooklyn-based studio hand-stitches city maps–including details like roadways, rivers, and city blocks–onto fluffy 60-inch x 70-inch cotton blankets. They're available for both Brooklyn and Manhattan (as well as other big cities like Paris, Boston, and Chicago), and Haptic will even add custom details for an extra fee.
