Milliken launch new collection : ‘Crafted Series’ as Unique as the Hand-made works that inspired it

Crafted Series (created by Milliken’s in-house design team and made in Wigan) was inspired by the modern craft movement. The warp and weft of the weaver’s age old techniques are celebrated and given a contemporary twist. In Crafted Series the Milliken designers pay homage to the hand-crafted and in particular woven forms. It’s a technique that helps enhance the textured appearance of the carpet and creates subtle tonal changes and a sense of movement across the floor plane. The 50cm tiles are of tufted structured loop pile construction and use Milliken’s unique patented Millitron® digital patterning technology. As with the crafted items lovingly made by hand that inspired the collection, Crafted Series allows for a unique result every time it is used. The carpet tile designs and patterns give the designer endless possibilities for play with colour combinations, shape-building and designs that flow from one to another. The collection has two designs: ‘Woven Colour’ and ‘Modern Maker’. There are six carefully curated colours (in each design): aqua, parchment, indigo, orange, charcoal and chartreuse. The colours can be used alone or in combination allowing for experimentation and play with tonal movement; light and shade. Crafted Series is made using ECONYL® yarn featuring 50% pre-consumer and 50% postconsumer content. The carpet tile backing is made from 90% recycled content cushion backing. The cushion backing not only offers underfoot comfort but also improves acoustics.
