Haptic Labs Baby quilts - custom city maps on a blanket

I may be out of town doing supposedly (hopefully) fabulous things, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging! Here is an oldie but goodie: a favorite, yet often overlooked post that I wanted to share all over again. Enjoy!

I’m dithering over this post. I’ve gone through several topics that are lingering on my future posts list, but none of them feel right this evening – it’s the mood outside with the perfect half-moon, the gestalt of the posts over the last week, and my inability to find all the info I’d like before posting. And some indecisive gene of mine that always rears it’s head at the most impossible times. But I think I’ve finally come up with a solution.

Baby quilts + maps = genius.

Haptic Labs creates quilts with printed maps of your favorite city – there are dozens to choose from, but they will also do a custom map of your choosing. This is one of those occasions where I would be willing to relax my usual cheapskate standards. At $95 – $125, the price is reasonable. Why? These handmade Baby Soft-Maps are not only beautiful (and did I mention they’re handmade?) but they’re also an ingenious mix of practicality and wit. You could choose a city based on so many scenarios. Obviously there’s where the child was born. But what about a quilt of your family’s ancestral lands? Or, maybe a map of where your sprout was conceived – that one cracks me up.

And, if you’re feeling a little richer, Haptic Labs also creates throw-size and queen-size quilts of various locations. These larger quilts are absolutely stunning, and a true family heirloom. The idea of falling asleep every night under a map of my childhood makes me glow just thinking about it.
