Manchester, N.H. -- Carpet One Floor & Home has released its 15th annual collection of pink ribbon welcome mats in support of lifesaving breast cancer research. This year’s collection continues to fund the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF)—the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world. The new assembly features five micro-collections, each representing a different global region through distinct colors and cultural concepts.
The notion of a globally-inspired collection pays sentiment to the staggering fact that breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide, with over 2 million new cases diagnosed in 2018 alone. Moreover, by supporting the efforts of the BCRF, the money raised through sales of the globally-inspired mats will help to fund the best and brightest research across 14 countries and 6 continents.
“This year’s collection represents the global effort to eradicate breast cancer,” said Terri Daniels, vice president of PR and communications. “Through design, we are able to celebrate both culture and cause.”
All twenty of the exclusive designs were created by an all-women team of Carpet One Floor & Home employees, and fall within "micro-collections": Mediterranean Collection; African Collection; Scandinavian Collection; British Collection; and Asian Collection.
At sea, beneath an indigo blue sky, or among the citrus trees and olives groves, the Mediterranean collection radiates the brilliance of Mother Nature. Bold graphic patterns, exotic animal prints, and vibrant colors make the African collection ideal for the individual who wants to take their style for a walk on the wild side. Simple, stylish, and modern, the Scandinavian collection will add an element of warmth and well-being to any home. For those who look to the future but respect the past, the British collection evokes the serenity of an English cottage garden as seen through delicate lace curtains. From the calming images of lush bamboo and water to ancient symbols of happiness and good fortune, the Asian collection is bound to bring a bit a Zen into the home.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s pink ribbon welcome mats are American-made and every design is adorned with a pink ribbon—the international symbol of breast cancer awareness. The mats include a sturdy rubber backing and are designed to withstand both indoor and outdoor conditions. They are stain-resistant and machine-washable.
Twenty-five percent of every mat sold is donated to BCRF, in support of critical life-saving research. BCRF-funded researchers have been involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. To date, Carpet One Floor & Home has funded over 9,100 hours of research through the Foundation.
“By partnering with BCRF, the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the country, Carpet One Floor & Home is making a real and tangible impact in advancing research,” said Myra Biblowit, president and CEO of BCRF. “Our partners enable life-saving research that is bringing us closer to a world without breast cancer.”
Pink ribbon welcome mats are available year-round at Carpet One Floor & Home stores across the U.S. and Canada.
