For a splurge in Austin, cosy up with a work of art Add to ...

A funky college town, Austin is known for its rich music scene and its eccentric vibe. It’s not a place where you’d be afraid to try something different, which is why it is the place to get Folk Fibers’ handmade quilts, the brainchild of local Savannah College of Art and Design graduate Maura Grace Ambrose. Each one-of-a-kind quilt is not just hand stitched but also hand dyed with organic plants Ambrose grows or forages in and around Austin. Ambrose is inspired both by traditional abstract quilts to modern Dada collage, her pieces would look just as comfortable hanging on your wall as covering your bed. Quilts start at $650 (U.S.). folkfibers.com
