Mohawk Renewal was born out of a desire to redefine the contours of how they source fiber and expand the existing definition of sustainable papermaking. By rediscovering old fiber sources like hemp, straw and cotton rag, Mohawk uncovered a new path forward. You might say they looked to the past to discover the future.
Hemp, unlike trees, grows rapidly, maturing in as few as 90 days. Turning hemp into pulp requires less chemicals, water, and energy than wood. Mohawk looked to a patented process to turn hemp stalks into pulp for making a wide variety of papers. Every sheet of Mohawk Renewal Hemp is made with 30% hemp fiber.
