New Path is Shaw Contract’s first carbon-neutral carpet tile collection constructed on its StrataWorx backing. Using EcoSolution Q100TM fiber technology in its construction, New Path achieves the lowest embodied carbon footprint of any Shaw Contract carpet tile collection so far. EcoSolution Q100TM is a 100% recycled content nylon fiber allocated from pre-consumer sources that establishes a low embodied carbon footprint when used in conjunction with StrataWorx backing; Shaw offsets the remainder of the carbon footprint with the purchase of verified carbon offsets.
New Path is also the first StrataWorx collection offered in a plank format; the collection features four 18- by 36-inch carpet tile styles that utilize biophilic design elements to mimic the natural world. Calm and Positive are the collection’s foundational styles and come in nine neutral colorways; Upbeat and Centered can stand on their own or serve as a transition or accent tile and are offered in nine coordinating neutrals and five colors.
