Mohawk's Renewal Straw portfolio.

Mohawk Fine Papers Inc., said to be North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes, and specialty materials for printing, is unveiling its new Renewal portfolio of papers made with hemp, straw, and recycled cotton fibre.

In an April 22 press release, Mohawk said the fibres being used for this new line are all annual crops, which regenerate in a year or less.

“The introduction of Mohawk Renewal represents a new chapter in our environmental story,” said Chris Harrold, Mohawk’s senior vice president of marketing. “In developing this portfolio, we have embraced new technology, new supply chains, and new uses for raw materials. We’re proud to take on the risks and challenges of being the first to bring truly sustainable fine paper to market.”


The portfolio includes Mohawk Renewal Hemp papers, which are available in three shades: Clean White, Fiber White and Flower. Each shade contains 30 per cent hemp fibre blended with post consumer paper waste and/or responsible virgin fibres. These fibre blends give each basis weight the ability to perform across printing processes and end-use applications.

Also, Mohawk Renewal Straw, available in three Weights: 80 Text, 120 Cover, and 140 Cover; smooth and rough finishes; digital and offset compatible; and envelopes in A2 and A7 sizes

Third, Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton is available in One White: T-Shirt White; One Color: Denim; three weights: 80 Text, 60 Cover, and 120 double thick cover; rough finish; digital and offset compatible; and envelopes in A2 and A7 sizes.
