Representative from Shaw Contract Group Presents at Interior Design Industry-Speak Seminar Series

Erin Jimenez Pollex, commercial design specialist of Shaw Contract Group, gave interior design students and faculty a presentation about the construction, manufacture and specification of carpet as part of the School of Art + Design’s Industry Speak Seminar Series on March 10. The audience was treated to a lesson that included a wide array of processes relevant to the selection of carpet products – from dyeing to twisting and heat setting, to tufting, coating and finishing. Life-cycle assessment and cradle-to-cradle recycling processes at the Dalton, Georgia plant were also shown and discussed. Shaw is a Berkshire Hathaway Company.
