January 16, 2019 – New York –  New eco-luxury textile brand BLACKSAW will be making its first appearance at NY NOW in New York City from February 3 – 6, 2019. 


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. Other collections include a new Zero Dye Collection of blankets made from 100% natural, un-dyed fibers — that Blacksaw will be launching at NY NOW — and a 100% Recycled Collection, created 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. 


The best way to describe a Blacksaw recycled blanket is: it’s like your favorite vintage blanket but perfectly restored, upgraded, and refined into a new generation of eco-conscious luxury. They are heavyweight, zero-itch, and perfectly polished — ready to be enjoyed for generations to come.  


Moreover, all their blankets are fully reversible due to their signature double-sided construction.

 

In addition to the meaningful way their blankets are produced, they have an art-driven edge to their aesthetic that really sets Blacksaw apart from the pack. They’ve created an “artist-designed series” and sell wall mounts, as their blankets are as beautiful as artwork.


Blacksaw’s design duo, Steph & Kyle Taylor, are firm believers that ethical choices lead to transformative opportunities — an ethos that is woven into every aspect of their personal lives and brand. Come by and see what makes this brand so special and meet the inspirational entrepreneurs behind Blacksaw at NY NOW this February. 


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