NEW YORK, NY. – February 7, 2017 – NY NOW®, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, in conjunction with Apartment Therapy announced today the winner of the “Best in Market” Award. The Sari Throw by Anchal Project received the recognition at the NY NOW winter 2017 market and is on display now in the HANDMADE® Global Design section (Booth #620) at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

“NY NOW is filled with incredible products, so it’s such an honor to have been selected amongst many deserving designers,” said Colleen Clines, Co-Founder and CEO, Anchal Project. “My sister Maggie and I dedicated a tremendous amount of time and creativity while designing each of our pieces and are thrilled to introduce our Sari Throw to consumers in 2017.”

Inspired by the strong women of Anchal’s artisan program, the Sari Throw revolutionizes traditional kantha quilting with contemporary geometric designs through aggregated stitch patterns. Hand-stitched from six layers of 100 percent certified organic cotton, the detailed stitched patterns and paneling create dynamic intersections of color and texture. A silver edging adds the finishing touch to this heirloom art.

The “Best in Market” Award recognizes one extraordinary product that stood out among the ten category winners of the “Best New Product” Awards. This year, the ten category winners from the “Best New Product” Awards were evaluated by Maxwell Ryan, Founder, and Carrie McBride, Managing Editor of Apartment Therapy, before a winner was selected.

“This year was the strongest ever and the largest show I remember since starting to come in 2006,” said Maxwell Ryan, Founder of Apartment Therapy. “The category winners were all interesting and unique – but our absolute favorite was the quilted bedding collections from Anchal Project. Besides being a beautiful, fresh perspective on textiles, it was also for a good cause.”
