April 22nd marks the 46th annual celebration of Earth Day. Here at Mohawk, environmental commitment, social responsibility and corporate stewardship are woven into the fabric of our culture and business practices, and we believe the origin of exceptional craft lies in exceptional materials. So, over the next several weeks, we’ll take a closer look at many of the talented artisans, craftspeople and makers featured in past issues of the Mohawk Maker Quarterly who choose only the highest quality, sustainable materials for their products.

Today we highlight Alan Solomon of Brooklyn-based Sawkill Lumber Co, a company that brings together material, history and design through reclaimed lumber.
