The article "Waste Not" found in Issue No. 15 of the #MohawkMakerQuarterly features four companies using waste as their primary input material for their products.
.
To provide a material reference to the content, we printed the article on recycled paper made from 100% post-consumer waste and utilized die cuts to further reveal the dimensionality of a simple folded sheet of paper.

When small clippings from making cotton clothing hit the cutting room floor, their next stop is usually the landfill. These pure cotton scraps are getting a new life, in the form of Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton.
.
Fun Fact: The scraps used to make Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton arrive in 1,000 pound bales at our pulping partner's facility and are sorted by hand to make sure every scrap of fiber that goes into our paper is 100% recycled cotton. Mohawk Renewal, Recycled Cotton, Denim + watercolor? We're digging this combo from @matthewtannermark.

For centuries, cotton textile waste was recycled to make paper. Today, there is more textile waste than ever. Strong, yet soft, these cotton fibers make beautiful paper.
.
Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton uses two sources for its cotton fiber: white t-shirt trim and blue denim thread. Seen here is a sheet of Mohawk Renewal, Recycled Cotton, Denim, made from 30% blue denim thread and 70% white cotton t-shirt scraps.
"I feel like my whole body of work is creative accidents! I don’t really plan too much in terms of how I’m going to make something technically. I’ll start making according to guidelines in my head, and a lot of times they don’t work. I can either redo it or find a way to work around this supposed mistake, and oftentimes that is what leads me to explorations and iterations and possibilities." —@reinasaur

"I love working with all kinds of media, but paper is the one that, over the years, has become my main medium. I think it’s because it feels so versatile and it’s also something that is very ubiquitous. It’s a fairly accessible medium. There’s paper everywhere, and I love that aspect of it. And you can manipulate it in so many ways that I feel like I’m still learning what I can do." —@reinasaur

Whether it’s a crisp white page pulled from the back of a printer or a stack of bright Keaykolour, @reinasaur's ability to draw life from such an ordinary object is nothing short of dazzling.

The entire #MohawkRenewal line is made using a blend of rapidly renewable natural fibers as well as recycled textiles. In designing these papers, we allowed the original fiber sources to contribute to the aesthetics of each paper. You may see some variability between each sheet, but we think that tells a compelling story.

Seen here are Mohawk Renewal, Hemp Flower, Recycled Cotton Denim, Straw Wheat and Straw Harvest White.
To mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we are excited to introduce you to our brand new, paradigm-shifting portfolio of papers made with hemp, straw, and recycled cotton fiber: Mohawk Renewal.
.
With the introduction of Mohawk Renewal, we are writing a new chapter in our evolving environmental story. Driven by a desire to redefine the contours of fiber sourcing by rediscovering legacy materials like hemp, straw, and cotton rag — we are, in essence, looking to the papermaking methods of the past to chart a more sustainable future.
.
Today, Mohawk Renewal represents a fresh expression of what responsible papermaking can look like. Click the link in our bio to learn more.
