SOLON, OHIO, June 10, 2018 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, debuts Tandus Centiva’s Tailored Twist Collection. This vibrant, carefully tailored modular carpet collection combines inventive design with sustainability using the company’s ethos® Modular with Omnicoat Technology™ recycled PVB film backing.
“With Tailored Twist, we looked to the intricate stitching of a hand-tailored suit, that careful detailing that makes high fashion so special, and translated it into a modular carpet to create an intentional, tailored space,” said Terry Mowers, Vice President Commercial Design, Tarkett North America. “The four patterns within the collection allow designers to create individualistic spaces with adventurous use of color.”
Tailored Twist features four patterns that can be used individually or combined for a custom feel:
• Tailored, the base style for the collection, provides a slightly larger scale print in grounding neutral tones.
• Tailored Plaid features Tailored as the dominant style and a tartan pattern along the tile’s edge.
• Tailored Bloom interprets a floral inspiration along the edge of Tailored tiles.
• Tailored Madras is a value-engineered, mid-scale plaid in a palette that coordinates with Tailored.
Featuring 162 possible combinations in its palette and patterns, Tailored Twist offers complete personalization. The collection’s designers followed key principles of pattern mixing, scaling, and coloring so every design feels whimsical but not erratic.
Tailored Twist’s unique designs are crafted using an innovative thread-up technique on the edge of Tailored Plaid and Tailored Bloom. The
entire collection features 100 percent solution-dyed fibers, offering durable beauty. The specialized 2-ply solution dye process mimics a space-dyed yarn without the water usage associated with space dyeing.
ethos® Modular with Omnicoat Technology™ completes the collection. Made from recycled post-consumer PVB film from recycled automotive windshields and other safety glass, ethos Modular is Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver, Living Product Challenge Imperative Certified, and 100% recyclable through Tarkett’s ReStart® reclamation program. ethos Modular is also a performance powerhouse, creating a chemical barrier for adverse flooring substrate when installed with TarkettTAPE™.
