With 2016 well under way, we’re looking back at some of our favorite media moments so far this year.


From custom green carpet that brings sustainability into the spotlight to Milliken associates serving as mentors, we’ve compiled a roundup of coverage across various areas of Milliken innovation. Keep an eye out for more media spotlights on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Milliken Goes Green

To help celebrate Global Green’s 13th annual Pre-Oscar Party, Milliken and Aquafil collaborated to create custom-designed green carpet. In addition to its dynamic green hue, the carpet featured a sustainable PVC-free construction, made from ECONYL® nylon - a regenerated yarn m​ade from reclaimed nylon waste, such as abandoned fishing nets.

Milliken’s David Moody Mentors

Each year, a new Liberty Fellowship Class is announced. The Liberty Fellowship is a statewide initiative that empowers and inspires young leaders by pairing them with mentors who have proven themselves with experience, leadership and success. This year, David Moody, executive vice president and president of the chemical division at Milliken & Company, will serve as a mentor for Matthew Van Patton, the CEO of QLBrands, a company that is committed to delivering safe, healthy products to communities around the world.

Out-of-This-World Textiles

Milliken is currently collaborating with the International Space Station to test how flame-retardant cotton fabrics burn in microgravity. The study could have important results in furthering and improving flame-retardant technology both in space and here on Earth.

Clemson & Milliken Embrace Open Innovation

In innovative endeavors, two is often better than one. That’s why various companies based in the Upstate as well as members of Clemson University are embarking on open innovation projects – sharing knowledge and collaborating to yield greater progress.
