Sustainable Design with Flooring

​Floor covering offers a wide rage of possibilities to support sustainability in interior design – from the actual floor covering product to the final installation.

At Milliken, we’re dedicated to providing innovative and sustainable flooring solutions – and our expertly designed collections, from aesthetic to functionality, are a perfect illustration. Enjoy a selection of our floor coverings that utilize Econyl® yarns by Aquafil, the world’s first and only 100% sustainable polymer.

Monuments and Shrines carpet collection pays homage to the neon signs that were the hallmark of Las Vegas culture. The total recycled content of a carpet tile ranges from 45 percent to 55 percent. 

Southern Analog’s man-meets-nature panoramic design features linear elements to create a dreamlike impression of motion. The collection features a total recycled content of 46%.


Sound and Fury uses Aquafil Econyl 75 yarn, a high-performance fiber with 70 percent recycled content, offering strength and life cycle comparable to fiber crafted from 100% virgin polymer. The total recycled content of a Sound and Fury tile is 44 percent.

TractionBack® - the environmentally superior alternative for floor covering installation

Milliken offers sustainable solutions to support the entire process of selecting and installing floor covering. TractionBack®, an innovative backing system for modular carpet, revolutionizes carpet tile installation using a high friction surface solution with several benefits: 

​• Eliminates the need for wet adhesives or “peel and stick” techniques, which require significant preparation and waste.

• Removes off gassing and VOCs emitted from adhesive chemicals.

​• Offers easier preparation for installers, faster move-in times for clients, easy replacement and is less costly than traditional adhesive systems.
