Two Local Businesses Honored in Garden & Gun’s 12th Annual Made in the South Awards

Garden & Gun magazine today announced the winners of its twelfth annual Made in the South Awards (MITSA), celebrating Southern-made products in six categories: Drink, Food, Home, Style, Outdoors, and Crafts. Among the award recipients were two local businesses – Brackish and Emily Daws Textiles.

“We started the Made in the South Awards over a decade ago as a way to recognize the remarkable talent and creativity of artisans, makers, chefs, and designers from across the region, and each year are truly wowed by the entries,” said David DiBenedetto, Garden & Gun’s senior vice president and editor in chief. “With our magazine’s fifteen-year anniversary kicking off next year, we are planning a few new surprises to further highlight the skills and stories of the South’s finest makers with our readers.”

Brackish’s jewelry was the winner of the Style category. Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner co-founded the company a decade ago introducing a unique feather-layered bow tie designed and handcrafted in South Carolina. After several years of development, the company launched a jewelry line that now includes more than fifty day-to-night designs. Like the original bow ties, the collection showcases the brilliant natural colors and patterns of sustainably sourced pheasant, peacock, partridge, quail, and guinea fowl feathers.

Emily Daws Textiles, which is based on Johns Island, was a runner-up in the Home category. Humphreys Studio Skye Lamp, made in Austin, Texas, won the category.

The only other Palmetto State business to be honored was Evergreen, South Carolina’s Altman Farm and Mill Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix, which was a runner-up in the Food Category.
