Milliken’s textile heritage continues to be a point of pride across our diverse company product portfolio. With over 150 years of experience, our approach has been about innovation – creating meaningful products to change the way textiles offer comfort and protection to each of us every day.
As Senior Hospitality Designer for Milliken’s floor covering division, Kristin Gruenefeld’s innovative approach to floor covering is born out of a market need to provide elevated, performance-driven surfaces with distinct aesthetics. Kristin’s solutions blend two seemingly incongruous elements – function and aesthetic – to bring to life an interior designer’s vision for high-volume spaces like hotels and restaurants.

A lot of what we do at Milliken is tangible – from creating flooring solution to designing innovative textiles to creating smart chemistries to ‘do good.’ Because of our company’s rich legacy and bright future, Milliken & Company joined Instagram this week as another way of sharing where we come from and where we are headed.
Today’s technical textiles are more than meets the eye. Flame resistant (FR) fabrics for protective workwear are no exception—requiring a keen understanding of market need, deep scientific expertise, and a bold exploratory perspective.
Since interning with Milliken in 1990, Dawn has utilized her keen eye for design and color, and her technical understanding of the science of performance textiles, to create fabrics spanning a range of industries. She spent time in women’s wear, automotive textiles, commercial table linens, before moving to residential and commercial interiors, where she focuses her time today.
At Milliken, we are a community of innovators. Stemming from meaningful design and forward thinking, our company addresses issues of today for the good of tomorrow. Milliken products, patents, and technology serve as the underpinning of daily life – as a U.S. consumer, you may interact with Milliken innovations up to 50 times a day without even knowing it.
The focus on STEAM education is incredibly important in building the next generation of innovators. Careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) are growing in need. Adding the Arts in the STEM equation to equal STEAM introduces a new level of creativity and perspective for problem solving – something we champion at Milliken to design meaningful innovations that ‘do good.’ In our own experience, melding diverse disciplines can result in creativity never before possible.
As the weather improves and we book our calendars with outdoor activities, these five Milliken innovations are making spring activities, from school field trips to long-weekend road trips, more accessible, colorful, and environmentally conscious.
As Milliken enters its 152nd year with a continuing vision to create ground-breaking innovations that change the user experience, we are excited to announce Keystone Aniline Corporation as a new member of the Milliken family of companies.
The stories of our early, industry-leading innovations still make an impact today. Since 1865, Milliken has been innovating to do good for the world and create a new level of experience for our customers. Our diversified portfolio of meaningfully designed products is derived from our team’s ability to combine unique insights with our extensive knowledge as scientists.
