Item details

Cotton and linen queen size quilt in our Airstream home, photographed for Rachael Ray Everyday Magazine.

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.

CARE
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.

STORY
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.

Meet the Creator
Vacilando is a design and production studio dedicated to making beautiful, useful objects while modernizing the tradition of American Craftsmanship.

Raised in Texas and London by two architect parents, Laura spent several years in New York City studying art history and painting before embarking on a year-long road trip adventure around the U.S. in 2013. Six years of traveling and two Airstream later, She now calls the Texas Hill Country home.

Completely self taught (with the help of the internet), Laura discovered the medium of textiles on the road and fell in love with the utility and potential of the craft. With a couple years of quilting under her belt and a dream of designing and making quilts all day, she launched Vacilando in February of 2015.

Endlessly eager to explore new places, wander through markets, and discover interesting colors and textures in nature, Laura draws inspiration from her travels and translates them into the modern minimalist designs that Vacilando is known for.
