Milliken has launched the Textured Sky collection of modular carpet tiles, which aims to bring colors and patterns of the sky into interior spaces.

The solution-dyed carpet tiles are made with a type-6 nylon fiber—manufactured by Bristol, Va.–based Universal Fibers—which tops a PVC-free, open-cell cushioned backing. Textured Sky is available in 19.5"-square and 10"-by-39" planks, in three designs and 20 colorways. It is offered in tufted, textured, or tip shear loop options. The new product line is NSF140 Platinum–certified and carries Environmental and Health Product Declarations and the Declare transparency label; it also complies with the Living Building Challenge's Red List imperative. Made with 39.3% recycled content.

No two variants of Textured Sky are the same. Although the surface collection comes in 20 colors, each finished carpet is unique thanks to variants in the yarns used during the production process. Each carpet is also made using high-luster yarn by Universal Fibers, which gives it an incandescent look.
