The Civic Desire patchwork

Borgerlyst’s patchwork blanket is made by designer Jan Rasmussen and illustrator Kristian Eskild Jensen. The idea stems from the old tradition of making patchwork blankets where everyone provided a small square of old, worn out fabric. None of these pieces were big enough to use by themselves.

But when everyone brought a little scrap of fabric, beautiful blankets were made. That’s the way it works with community, ‘pot lucks’ and civic desire too: None of us can do it by ourselves, but when we patch all of our wills and skills together, we can create something amazing.
