The Antwerp Quilt is inspired by the spirit of the Belgian city it’s named for and the bold statement made by Zaha Hadid’s Port House. It takes the traditional flying geese quilt block and modernizes the structure, balancing each half of the quilt and throwing in an irreverent splash of terracotta. A bold quilt for the modern home.

Machine wash delicate in cold water with a gentle detergent. Tumble dry low or hang to dry.
Fabric will crinkle slightly after the first wash and will soften with use + love.
HANGING SLEEVE OPTION
Add a hanging sleeve to turn your quilt into a piece of wall art. The sleeve is made with the same fabric as the quilt back and lies flat when not hanging, so you can still use it as a quilt.
Antwerp is a city that will always be special to me. It’s where my mother grew up and it’s where my grandparents and nearly all my aunts, uncles and cousins live. It’s a place that’s always felt familiar because of family, but only in the past few times I’ve visited as an adult that I’ve really gotten to know the actual city.
What strikes me most about Antwerp as a city is the harmony in which modern and traditional coexist. Thatched roof farmhouses mingle with contemporary minimalist homes, neither looking out of place. The city center is bustling and cosmopolitan, but relatively small and sleepy. Belgians don’t shy away from directly juxtaposing new and old, most evident in Zaha Hadid’s Port House, which balances an angular glass structure on top of an architecturally traditional fire station.
