Home News Mohawk launches Celebrated Heritage collection

celebrated heritageCalhoun, Ga.—For its latest curated collection, Celebrated Heritage, Mohawk Group partnered with the Museum of International Folk Art and the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe, N.M.

“With the goal of creating a visually intriguing and richly textured collection, our design team focused their search of the museums’ collections on textiles, basketry and pottery of the native cultures of the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico,” said Jackie Dettmar, Mohawk Group’s vice president of marketing, design and product development. “The resulting patterns of Celebrated Heritage explore the aesthetic continuities within these craft traditions and their evolution from ancestral to modern.”

From the honeycombed texture of ceramics by the Pueblo peoples of the Southwestern U.S. and the delicate intricacy of woven baskets by the Hupa people of Northern California, to the layered Bargello geometry of a 19th century woven cloth from Mexico, these artistic motifs and techniques form a continuous line of communication amongst these cultures and their people, according to Mohawk.

“Celebrated Heritage bears witness to the continuous interpretative work that enables a culture to sustain a craft, and a craft to sustain vital elements of a culture,” said Pamela Kelly, vice president of licensing and brand management for the Museum of New Mexico Foundation. “We hope specifiers choose Celebrated Heritage for their next projects, and that the collection inspires creativity within their spaces.”

A portion of the proceeds from Celebrated Heritage supports the Museum of International Folk Art and the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in their mission to preserve and promote the artistic and craft traditions of the world’s artisans, according to Mohawk Group.
