As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, people and organizations everywhere are looking for ways to help however they can. As a manufacturer of carpets and rugs, Mohawk realized that we could put industrial sewing equipment to work to produce vitally needed medical gowns for healthcare providers.
In partnership with Fabric Sources International, Mohawk quickly developed a process for cutting a fabric pattern and sewing together gown components, which are being supplied to regional healthcare facilities. The sewing team adapted quickly to the new product and material. Production expanded from a handful of gowns at first to 5,000 per day and beyond.
