Mohawk Group’s New Heathered Hues Yarn System for Better Products and a Better World
We know how to spin a yarn. After all, woven is in our roots, tracing back to the opening of our first woven mill in 1928. Nearly a century later we’re still developing innovative new products, and this year we are proud to introduce everyone to Heathered Hues, our new sustainable high-performance color yarn system developed to give our soft surface products a more natural and variegated, wool-like effect.
Solar energy is in bloom at The Renaissance Collaborative in Chicago
On Wednesday, June 13, an enthusiastic crowd gathered in sunny south Chicago for a celebration of our first smartflower solar system installation, a highly anticipated event that took place during NeoCon 2018.
The smartflower uses advanced technology to automatically move its ‘petals’ to align itself with the sun at optimal angles.
At one time, the world was focused on leaving a smaller footprint on our planet; we were encouraged to change our lifestyles to take less from Mother Earth. Today companies such as Mohawk, dedicated to making business decisions rooted in corporate social responsibility, talk not just in terms of footprints but in terms of handprints — of giving back more than we take.
The majority of designers and manufacturers recognize the need to incorporate sustainable practices into the way they do business, and many do a commendable job. But there are those who go above and beyond to embrace the strictest policies and accreditations because they know it is difficult but vital work.
