Comma Workshop fuses text and textile into quilts that are minimalist and unabashedly “crafted” at the same time. The concept, design, and written content are all the work of Kerry Larkin who founded the company in 2010. Individual quilts are made to order and are produced by a network of quilters in Colorado who move at their own pace, taking in as much or as little Comma work as they like. For more about Larkin and the company click here.

The aesthetic is clean and contemporary with a nod to English midcentury design.
