Embodied Beauty

Less carbon in the atmosphere.
More beauty on your floor.

The Embodied Beauty™ collection is designed to help restore the health of the world and lower the carbon footprint of your space with style. The collection features a range of beautiful carpet tile designs, including our first-ever carbon negative products in three unique styles: Shishu Stitch™, Tokyo Texture™, and Zen Stitch™.

The collection lives up to its name and shows that the pursuits of beautiful design and sustainability are inseparable. In addition to the three cradle-to-gate carbon negative styles, as part of our commitment to Climate Take Back™, all of the styles that are featured within the collection are carbon neutral across their full product life cycle.







Beauty that restores.

The collection is inspired by the Japanese aesthetics of minimalism, restoration, and the organic beauty of the natural world. From narrow monochromatic patterns to large scale graphic tufted textures, these styles all combine and contrast tastefully.

Backings that give back.

We are on a mission to lower the carbon footprint of your space and to do this, we are transforming our global backing systems with the launch of our new CQuest™ backings.

Guided by materials science, we’ve added new thinking and innovative new materials to make backings with a much lower carbon footprint. First, we added new bio-based materials and more recycled content to our backings. Then, we measured how these materials influence the carbon footprint. These new materials, measured on a stand-alone basis, are net carbon negative – reducing our carbon footprint and resulting in carbon negative backings.

Less is more, like never before.

Ikigai, a “reason for being,” is a Japanese concept related to well-being and happiness through connection with others and with nature. Ikigai teaches appreciation for simplicity and acceptance of what is impermanent.

Inspired by these principles, Embodied Beauty focuses on bringing new life to the expected. The collection embraces calm, muted grays in warm and cool tones alongside natural colors for added dimension. Simple Sash™, Sashiko Stitch™, and Vintage Kimono™ evoke the delicate beauty of antique textiles and make ideal companions for Zen Stitch™ with its irregular gridded texture. Geisha Gather™ is a modern, woven graphic that invites you to create your own zen-like patterns. Tokyo Texture™ and Shishu Stitch™ take notes from nature with organic texture and soft, subtle striae.

Love Carbon. And help to restore the health of the world.

We know that too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is causing global warming, which in turn is causing climate change.

Nature has always had a way of managing the amount of carbon in our atmosphere by storing it in the plants and trees that cover our planet. However, as human activity releases more and more carbon dioxide, the natural world is struggling to keep up. So why create products that contribute to this problem and do more harm than good?

Taking our cue from nature, we’ve learned to work with carbon by using it as a building block to engineer better products. This journey has led us to create products that store carbon, keep it out of the atmosphere and help restore the health of the world.
