We are in the midst of a cultural ‘maker’ movement, emphasizing the importance of crafting beautiful, unique products by hand.
We believe making is the most fundamental expression of the human spirit, and Mohawk recently introduced three new publications which feature the stories of printers, designers, manufacturers, artists, artisans, musicians, and all those who make their living as makers.
Today, we are very pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc., as Supporting Sponsor of the 2013 Martha Stewart American Made program and awards ceremony.
In a technological era punctuated with e-mail, smart phones, tablets and texts, both Mohawk and Martha Stewart American Made believe that a new maker culture is emerging. This is the first year of Mohawk’s sponsorship and the second year of the American Made program, which celebrates artists, creative entrepreneurs and small business owners who are powering an economic resurgence in this country. Mohawk’s support of the American Made program echoes the Mohawk Maker efforts to support an emerging maker movement.
“Mohawk has taken pride in the art of papermaking for nearly a century. Generations of fine papermakers have honed their craft in our upstate New York mills, so we are endlessly inspired by the artistry of makers and we’re proud to support and be a part of the 2013 Martha Stewart American Made event,” said Bart Robinson, Vice President of Marketing at Mohawk.
Mohawk will be present at the American Made award ceremony and workshop events held in New York City, October 15-17, and in addition, Mohawk fine paper products will be used at the American Made awards ceremony and workshops, including formal invitations for the awards ceremony, event programs, brochures, signage and supplies for on-site demonstrations. You’ll also be able to find Mohawk featured in a full page ad in the November issue of Martha Stewart Living® Magazine.
As we approach the American Made events this October, we look forward to sharing event details with you. In the meantime, visit www.marthastewart.com/americanmade for more details and to vote for your favorite makers!
