Construction Lines

Construction Lines

Oakland

Erin Owes of Construction Lines has a background in architecture and art and a lifelong love of Islamic geometry. In her North Oakland studio she creates quilts and home goods that are designed using sacred and Islamic geometric grids and patterns.

Each quilt is block printed by hand before being hand-quilted. The designs are contemporary but the craft is heirloom. All pieces are made from high quality cotton and linen with organic cotton and bamboo batting.
