Nestle into a world heritage site, Yosemite. The quilt depicts the iconic Yosemite Valley and the Merced River. The granite walls, which tower more than 3,000 feet (twice the height of the Empire state building) are made with marbled cotton designed exclusively for Haptic Lab by artist Natalie Stopka, and the waterfalls, pine valleys, and plateaus are embroidered and appliquéd in detail. Beautiful as a layer of warmth or hung in your home.
To do our part in protecting public lands for future generations, 10% of our sales will benefit the National Park Foundation, the official charity of the National Park System.
Place names embroidered on the quilt: Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridal Veil Falls, Merced River, Glacier Point, Clouds' Rest, Vernal Fall, Sentinel Dome, Eagle Peak, Yosemite Falls, Royal Arches
WHY WE LOVE IT
Why Quilts? Quilts are tactile objects that absorb and accumulate our love. They are generational objects, heirlooms passed down within families as a way to keep our stories alive and familiar. The act of quilting is an act of love - a quilt is a talisman that protects and comforts when we're at our most vulnerable - in our sleep. The texture and warmth of a quilt conjures memories of home, and for some commemorate life's big moments: birth, marriage, and coming of age.
Quilts are functional as bedding and as art, an unusual intersection for a household craft that has been predominantly seen as women's work. The value of a handmade quilt lies not just in the beauty of the piece, but in its sentimental value. These treasured keepsakes tell our stories, and a quilted map provides the scaffolding on which the story is held into focus: Haptic Lab quilts become a snapshot of a moment in time in a world that is rapidly changing.
