I love Anthology and the Anthology blog. Do you? They never fail to share beautiful, interesting, and inspiring products and ideas. When I saw a post on Hopewell American Textiles, my jaw dropped. These quilts may be the perfect find for someone who’s hunting for something handmade and graphic. (It can be so hard to find a handmade modern quilt!)
The history and mission behind Hopewell is just as beautiful:
Eliza Kenan and Claire Oswalt started HOPEWELL as a design workshop built upon the principles of the Hopewell Exchange Program. In this program, Native Americans transformed materials into handmade goods and then traded the pieces for more materials. With a deep respect and love for crafts, Eliza and Claire share experience in woodworking, ceramics, sculpting, knitting, quilting, and painting. All of these elements combine to form the beautiful compositions you see here. A bit graphic and a touch modern, HOPEWELL seeks to bring new meaning to the word “heirloom,” thus redefining it for future generations.
You can read more about Eliza and Claire and see more quilts and some kitty-faced linen napkins here. Do you have a favorite online resource for textiles or linens? An Etsy or Cartel shop or just a retail chain?
