Milliken introduces Allegory Collection

Home Press Release Milliken introduces Allegory Collection

Spartanburg, S.C. — Milliken has introduced the Allegory Collection, a blend of layered textures and color saturation inspired by traditional Ikat dyeing techniques. Designed by Holly Nguyen, Allegory features a reinvented construction and highlights what is possible when combining technology, texture and color placement in a new way.

Milliken’s Millitron printing evolves with the Allegory Collection to expand the company’s broad color capability at the yarn-level, presenting distinct design options with the ease of tile-to-tile pattern matching printing provides. The innovation allows a fusion of various yarns and dyeing techniques to give an inherent texture and luster to the abstract patterns, as each yarn absorbs color differently. The result is a design that subtly changes color saturation as the pattern scale changes.

Many features of the Allegory Collection include:

  • Four scales of refined patterns—Aside, Stanza, Ballad and Syntax—for a variety of interior aesthetics.
  • A tufted, textured loop construction of Milliken Certified WearOn Nylon Type 6,6.
  • Available in 50 cm x 50 cm modular carpet and 16 colors with a ride range of sophisticated neutrals.
  • Protected with StainSmart—a unique formulation that provides the benefits of both a stain and soil repellent and resistant.
  • Available with TractionBac—a less costly and environmentally superior method for laying modular carpet tile. There’s no ‘peel,’ just ‘stick’ with TractionBack.

“Milliken’s unparalleled technological capabilities allow the company to constantly reinvent what is possible with floor covering,” said Bob Hutchison, who was recently appointed vice president of global design for the Milliken floor covering division. “Allegory combines the individual strengths of two carpet constructions for unique design and performance benefits. The innovation is a perfect illustration of how Milliken aspires to create new experiences for customers.”

Allegory is PVC-free and manufactured by Milliken. Additionally, Allegory is available with an Environmental Product Declaration, Health Product Declaration and Declare transparency label. The collection also contributes to LEED, The Living Building Challenge and other green building certifications.
