At Milliken, we believe that a healthy enterprise and healthy earth are vitally linked. We are proud of our strong heritage of innovation and deep history moving sustainability forward in carpet and textile manufacturing.
For more than 100 years, Milliken has discovered new ways to be good stewards of the environment. Milliken led the way in developing the first PVC-free carpet tile in 1986 and became the first carpet and textile manufacturer to be certified carbon negative, among other achievements.
We love when designers embrace the same philosophy. Beautifully Upcycled is a popular social thread we maintain on a weekly basis to showcase creative pieces composed of recycled materials. Below is a summary of recent Beautifully Upcycled pieces that have caught our eye. You can follow the #BeautifullyUpcycled hashtag on Milliken's Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest pages.
