Collaboration Comes Full Circle

Struck by the harmony of man-made surfaces in nature, Cradle to Cradle visionary William McDonough captured moments from a garden in China that inspired the way we make products to this day.

In 2003, Shaw Contract worked in collaboration with William McDonough to design ‘A Walk in the Garden’, our first ever collection featuring both EcoWorx backing and Eco Solution Q-fiber. This collection’s design framework helped drive the development of the Cradle to Cradle certification process.

Renewed and revisited, we are proud to relaunch ‘A Walk in the Garden’ in 2017 with a fresh colour palette and new tile size.

Expanding on our connection with nature, made for positive impact, the patterns in this collection were inspired by pictures of surfaces worn by nature that William McDonough took on his walk through a garden in China.
