The amazing American Comfort Quilt ($4,900) is one of the most unique patriotic items that I have come across in a long time. A beautiful piece of art, this exquisite Quilt made of cotton and polyester boasts of 58 logos of mass-market retailers, fast food chains and other corporations that participated in the creation of the contemporary North American identity and condition. Clearly visible on this Quilt are famous North American brands like Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s, Burger King and many more brands that have been a crucial part of the North American culture. The concept of this unique quilt is to examine the problematic balance between familiarity and alienation. The brands give us both comfort and identity, yet we feel ambivalent or even negative toward their hegemony over our cultural and economic landscape. This gives rise to the problem and the question of balance between the two.
Aside from the two contrasting views that the Quilt depicts, it is also a great piece of art that will appeal to many youngsters who swear by these brands. What is more, like any other piece of art, this Quilt is limited to just 10 pieces.
So if you appreciate the idea behind this Quilt or just love all the brands portrayed on it, you had better hurry if you want to be the lucky owner of this American Comfort Quilt. Priced at $4,900 this Quilt is available here.
