Product Q+A: Shaw Contract's Essay of Clues

 

NAME
Essay of Clues

BIRTHPLACE
Cartersville, GA

PARENTS
Architect/designer/author William McDonough and Shaw Contract Group

SIBLINGS
A Walk in the Garden—a 2003 collaboration between McDonough and Shaw Contract Group

GENETIC MAKEUP
Coming from McDonough and Shaw, how could I possibly be anything but Cradle-to-Cradle?

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
Safe for human health and the environment; high performance; Cradle-to-Cradle-certified; comfortable in the workplace, but not afraid to visit other environments; and designed with the end in mind.

WHAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL?
Take a look at my patterns. Inspired by the landscape of human creation and its impact on the world, I bring abstractions from McDonough's work in city and site development to carpet for a unique aesthetic.

DO YOU HAVE A MOTTO?
Great design should do us all some serious good-be it a city, a building or a carpet: Design is good.

PROUDEST MOMENT 
I'm proud every day. Not only am I completely recyclable into beautiful carpet, I'm an energy and carbon neutral collection too.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
My Eco Solution Q® nylon fiber and EcoWorx® broadloom and tile backing are completely recyclable into new fiber and backing. Just call the 800 number on my back and Shaw will pick me at no charge—keeping me out of landfill and saving you valuable time and resources.
