Quilts are the most symbolic of bed coverings-they can incorporate familial and historical references, personal milestones and cultural indicators. But not many of them are maps, as these beautiful quilts from Brooklyn's Haptic Lab are. The company's name comes from the Greek word for touch, and that's exactly what you'll want to do when you see one of these beautiful bedspreads. Based on maps of New York City, Los Angeles, London, Paris and San Francisco-and hand-stitched by a small workshop in India-they're tactile and cozy. Ideal wedding or holiday gifts, or simply an homage to the city you love, call home, or maybe met your mate in, Haptic Lab quilts are heirlooms in the making.
