Mohawk Fine Papers (Cohoes, NY) announces the launch of Mohawk Loop: a comprehensive line of recycled and environmentally preferable papers. The papers are made with renewable energy and post-consumer fiber — including the largest selection of 100% postconsumer waste (pcw) options — without sacrificing quality, variety or performance. The line also includes the new coated Mohawk Silk with 50% pcw.

Mohawk Loop includes:

  • 100% postconsumer waste (pcw), recycled papers.
  • A rich color palette with 35 shades ranging from bright white to rich black, with fibered shades and fashion colors.
  • Eight finishes, including a "silk coated" finish with 50% pcw, among the highest pcw content coated papers available.
  • All the most popular weights, from writing papers to extra heavy covers and paperboard for packaging.
  • Envelopes stocked in commercial and announcement sizes.

Mohawk Loop is entirely FSC-certified, manufactured with Green-e certified windpower, and made carbon neutral. Green Seal certification is pending. Mohawk Loop papers are packaged in Mohawk's new environmentally responsible packaging materials.

"As a family-owned business, our sustainability initiatives are comprehensive and completely woven into the fabric of our lives, culture and business practices, which is one of the reasons we support The Living Principles," says Thomas O'Connor Jr., chairman and CEO, Mohawk Fine Papers. "The development of Mohawk Loop has been a carefully considered endeavor, from the items offered and developed for this line to the name and positioning of the brand. This is the most unique, truly environmental paper line. It has everything every business needs every day to produce great work while adhering to corporate and sustainability goals."

Mohawk Loop merges Mohawk Synergy, Mohawk Genesis, Mohawk Passport and Mohawk Proterra with brand new Mohawk Loop shades and finishes to create the full line.
