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.
Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton uses two sources for its cotton fiber: white t-shirt trim and blue denim thread. Creating paper from cotton starts with scraps, specifically textile waste from large clothing manufacturers. Then, using a combination of heat, water, and time, those scraps are transformed into pulp, which becomes paper.
