We've made the difficult decision to postpone #TheMohawkShow judging originally scheduled for mid-April.
.
We have over 200 incredible submissions and we’re thrilled at the interest our call for entries generated. No one is more excited than we are to celebrate all of the amazing entries and announce the winners.
.
Thank you for understanding, and for being a critical part of the show. We promise you’ll be the first to know when new dates are set!
@erinlburkedesigns struggles to sit still. Even after a long day working as @papersource’s Design Director, taking the lead on perfectly pop culture paper goods bedecked with everything from llama puns to love notes, the need to create still buzzes for Burke.

A few years ago, while looking for something to keep her hands occupied, she gathered some inspiring materials: rope, embroidery floss, and some embellishments. The resulting jewelry caught the eyes of friends and colleagues, who asked for their own and encouraged Burke to find a wider audience for her creations.

Head over to the Mohawk Blog where Burke offers some advice and insight into what it takes to sustain such unbridled creative energy. Link in bio. Social distancing can’t stop the Mohawk family from getting together. We held a virtual happy hour tonight attended by employees from all of our locations around North America to ring in the weekend, lift each other's spirits and raise a glass.

Cheers to staying healthy and safe from our family to yours! 🥂

With all that is happening in the world, we want to take this time to look back and share some interesting and inspiring pieces of content from past Mohawk Maker Quarterlies we feel are particularly poignant these days. First up is Issue No. 14: Lead & Serve.

#MohawkMakerQuarterly Issue No. 14 explores the harmonious tension in the marriage of service and leadership. Let’s celebrate those who pave the way by helping others find their own path.

It's a digital world right now—which makes this a critical time to think about the things we can touch, and the materials that make them.

Did you know that until it was outlawed in the 1930's, hemp was just a run-of-the-mill component of fabric, rope, and paper in the United States? We're looking to the knowledge and traditions of the past to shape a more responsible future.
