Solon, Ohio—Tarkett Hospitality introduced a new custom carpet collection that draws inspiration from the history and heritage of handcrafted textiles from Mexico and Central America. Available in ten unique yet interconnected patterns, the new El Alma collection draws inspiration from traditional motifs and embroidery visuals developed by Latin American cultures, spotlighting the artisans and communities who have long kept these crafts alive, the company said.

“The artisanal traditions passed down through generations within these diverse cultures have always been and continue to be a driving force of craft and industry in the world, including textiles and floor coverings,” said Amy Jaekel, creative director, Tarkett Hospitality. “With vibrant beauty and diversity, El Alma connects today’s hospitality spaces to the soul of textile and carpet craftsmanship.”

The new collection celebrates a global influence on design and gives hospitality designers an option for creating memorable guest experiences. Each pattern in the El Alma collection has a fully customizable palette, the most elaborate of which features 14 colors. The collection also features a variety of constructions to meet the needs of different spaces within the hospitality environment. Five of the collection’s 10 patterns are designed as Axminster, while the others are machine-tufted to offer a variety of construction options. To further ensure the right solution for any space, Tarkett is able to engineer any of the styles to meet a given budget and project requirements. And the company’s global footprint makes it easy to carry a consistent brand vision throughout the world.

Designs for the collection are made using the company’s 80% wool yarn, which has been third-party tested and proven to provide greater appearance retention, stronger resilience to crushing and an overall reduction in life-cycle costs. In addition, wool fiber is naturally non-allergenic, flame-retardant and repellant of water and stains.
