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.
