Working with U.S. based manufacturer In2Green, I designed a series of environmentally friendly graphic throw blankets. Smart Throws are knit from a blend of polyester recycled from plastic bottles and recycled cotton yarn upcycled from fabric clippings discarded during the cut-and-sew process in the garment industry. Smart Throws are UV resistant, quick to dry and perfect for indoor and outdoor living. The throws are currently being sold exclusively at the Cooper Hewitt Design Shop in New York.
