Milliken's new Allegory Collection features an innovative blend of layered textures and color saturation inspired by traditional Ikat dyeing techniques, according to the company. Designed by Holly Nguyen, Allegory features a reinvented construction and highlights what is possible when combining technology, texture and color placement in a new way.
“Allegory combines the individual strengths of two carpet constructions for unique design and performance benefits. The innovation is a perfect illustration of how Milliken aspires to create new experiences for customers,” said Bob Hutchison, who was recently appointed vice president of global design for the Milliken floor covering division.
Milliken’s Millitron printing evolves with the Allegory Collection to expand the company’s broad color capability at the yarn-level, presenting distinct design options with the ease of tile-to-tile pattern matching printing provides. According to Hutchison, the innovation allows a fusion of various yarns and dyeing techniques to give an inherent texture and luster to the abstract patterns, as each yarn absorbs color differently. The result is a design that subtly changes color saturation as the pattern scale changes.
