Eco-Luxury Textile Brand BLACKSAW sweeps Best New Product awards at NY NOW

Brand makes debut and wins Best New Product in both Best in Market and Accent on Design categories

 New York, NY- February 11th, 2019 – Blacksaw, a premium eco-luxury textile brand, make their debut with a splash, sweeping both awards for Best New Product for their category, Accent on Design, and Best in Market at NY NOW on February 5, 2019 for their Harvest Moon reversible throw from their Zero Dye collection.

NY NOW’s Best New Product Award – Best In Market recognizes and celebrates the exceptional offerings from exhibitors across the market. The Accent on Design Award recognizes excellence in design and innovation. Winners are selected based on creativity, ingenuity, innovation, function, originality and design by a panel of industry experts and media. Blacksaw’s win represents excellence above tens of thousands of products shown at NY NOW. Blacksaw is a brand driven by creating meaningful possessions worthy of taking up space in people’s lives. 100% baby alpaca blankets and throws from Peruvian wool are the foundation of what they do; but whatever the pursuit may be, their aim is to create long-lasting, timeless blankets and throws that are curated according to originality, usability, and spirit.

Their signature fiber, baby alpaca, is an eco-friendly material that is as soft as cashmere, 7X as warm as wool, hypoallergenic and stands up to the test of time. The award-winning Harvest Moon throw is fully reversible, and made from 100% natural, un-dyed fibers, from their Zero Dye Collection. Other collections include a 100% Recycled Collection, using factory off-cuts that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill. Instead, the fibers are shredded and spun into recycled yarn, and woven into your new favorite fireside companion.

Founders Steph and Kyle Taylor were blown away by the reaction they received from press and retailers at the event.

“We’re so honored to have won these two incredible awards (Best New Product in the Best in Market and Accent on Design categories) at such an amazing show for something we believe in so much, our new ‘Zero Dye Collection’,” said Steph Taylor, Head Designer. “The Harvest Moon reversible throw was born out of our commitment to working with nature and with integrity. It fully embodies our brand ethos of how making ethical choices leads to exciting and innovative ideas.”

Blacksaw blankets are currently available for purchase online and in select stores across the US and Canada.
