Brooklyn Map Blankets by Haptic Lab

Soft-Maps are quilted dupioni silk blankets with hand-stitched sections of the Brooklyn street map, created by Haptic Lab. Pictured here is a crib quilt with a map of Fort Greene on it. Hello there, Flatbush Avenue!

Compare this blanket to the relatively colorful quilts by Leah Evans and the downright gaudy American comfort quilt by Citizen:Citizen [or incredibly clever, or sharply ironic, depending on your point of view].

  2. Do you have a queen-size quilt for the Chelsea area of Manhattan? My daughter lives on west 16th St and my son, on West 13th Street. I would love to have a quilt made for my daughter. And what would the price be. I would like a white background and a medium brown thread used.
    Thanks.
