New York’s Grand Central Terminal, site of the 2013 Martha Stewart Living American Made awards on October 15. Cohoes-based Mohawk is a Supporting Sponsor, and the company’s fine papers are being used exclusively for all American Made communications and events.
The Audience Choice Awards turned out to be an incredible attraction, with more than one million votes cast! The field was narrowed to six finalists before SVG Cuts, of St. Charles, Illinois was announced as Audience Choice Grand Prize Winner. We think their 3-D paper projects are completely irresistible, and we look forward to seeing many more exciting creations from SVG Cuts in the future.
As Supporting Sponsor of American Made, Mohawk is thrilled to pay tribute to the honorees, yet we’d be remiss if we didn’t also tip our hat to the thousands of honorees who entered the contest. There are so many talented makers across the country that we couldn’t name them all. However, we do feel that it is important to recognize the makers and nominees based in our hometown – the Capital Region of New York State.
As Bart Robinson, Mohawk’s Vice President of Marketing said, “Mohawk has taken pride in the art of papermaking for nearly a century. Generations of fine papermakers have honed their craft in our Cohoes and Waterford paper mills, and we are endlessly inspired by the artistry of makers in the Capital Region and beyond.”
We’re very pleased to be a part of American Made, to celebrate the 2013 Honorees, and to support the talented makers and nominees who practice their craft here in upstate New York. Mohawk salutes the twelve Capital Region-based businesses that were nominated in the American Made Audience Choice category.
