The Yoko Blanket
When art & fibers orbit in unison, we align beauty from the inside out, balancing the mystery between nature, peace and power. Yoko is a reversible blanket that couples as art, made from humanely shorn, premium nude (100% natural), long-lasting baby Alpaca. "In the middle of a dream, I call her name," -John Lennon.
Alpaca is one of the finest materials on the planet. This means luxury, durability, and of course comfort. This eco-friendly material is as soft as cashmere, 7x as warm as wool, is hyperallergic and will stand the test of time.
What Blacksaw is all about
Local to Ontario Steph and Kyle Taylor are the designers and founders of Blacksaw. Their beautiful mission statement states; “We will not sacrifice who we are and what we believe in. This is a story about staying true to our vision and sticking to our belief systems. Working with eco-friendly materials, or better yet, not working with man made synthetic fibers. Making sure we are contributing to the solution and not to the problem. Utilizing, in our opinion, one of the most underused and underrated fabrications in the world, and turning it into something beautiful, that we are proud of. We will only work with people who inspire us and people we trust, believe in and truly care about”.
Similar to The Local Shoppe's goal, Blacksaw was born with the desire to create meaningful possessions worthy of taking up space in your life.
