Today we live in a world that creates more waste than it does reduce, reuse or recycle. Designers in all disciplines are trying to address this through the exploration of new materials and production processes, creating a new design language and landscape that moves beyond industry or craft.
Mohawk Group's Sunweave woven carpet responds to current desires for artisanal materials in the built environment. Inspired by women weavers of indigenous cultures around the world, Sunweave evokes natural patterns found in baskets, blankets and textiles.

Mohawk boasts a long weaving tradition that dates back to the 1800s, when our founders brought looms over from England, bringing the time-honored craft of woven carpet construction to the United States. And this year we proudly celebrate the 90th anniversary of our Karastan luxury line, marking nearly a century of beauty and craftsmanship in luxury woven carpets and rugs.
