Hemp, Cotton and Straw Papers!

Choose from three renewable fibers in seven colors





Recycled Cotton


Hemp grows rapidly, maturing in as quickly as 90 days. Turning hemp into pulp requires less chemicals, water, and energy than wood.

Making paper with straw eliminates the need for "fall burns" set by farmers to clear straw from their fields, creating acrid smoke and carbon emissions.

Recycled Cotton paper is made from t-shirt and denim scraps diverted from millions of tons of textile waste sent to landfills every year.

Mohawk Renewal Hemp papers are available in three shades, Clean White, Fiber White and Flower. Each shade contains 30 percent hemp fiber blended with post consumer paper waste and/or responsible virgin fibers. These fiber blends give each basis weight the ability to perform across printing processes and end-use applications.

Mohawk Renewal Hemp is available in:
• Two Whites: Clean White + Fiber White
• One Color: Flower, a natural green
• Three Weights: 80 Text, 120 Cover, and 140 Cover
• Smooth and Rough finishes
• Digital and Offset compatible
• Envelopes in A2 and A7 sizes


Straw is a byproduct of wheat farming that is typically disposed of as waste. Every year, thousands of acres of this rapidly renewable fiber are either burned off or plowed under, contributing to CO2 emission and soil erosion.


Now, that impact is being mitigated by harvesting straw for paper pulp. Mohawk Renewal Straw is made using straw fiber harvested by Columbia Pulp in Eastern Washington, where they have built a new mill to process straw fibers into viable paper pulp. Blended with responsibly sourced wood fibers, Renewal Straw has been engineered to perform on every press platform Mohawk serves today, from letterpress to digital and offset.


Each sheet of Mohawk Renewal Straw tells an origin story. Both Harvest White and Wheat shades take their cue from the 30 percent straw fibers used in each sheet. With subtle fiber inclusions, these papers are unique in the market.

Mohawk Renewal Straw is available in:
• One White: Harvest White
• One Color: Wheat, a golden straw color
• Three Weights: 80 Text, 120 Cover, and 140 Cover
• Smooth and Rough finishes
• Digital and Offset compatible
• Envelopes in A2 and A7 sizes


Recycled Cotton textiles have been recycled to make paper for centuries—in fact, it was the primary paper technology before wood pulp took over. Strong yet soft, cotton fibers make beautiful paper. Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton uses two sources for its cotton fiber: white t-shirts and blue denim. By making the most of these waste materials as a new pulp source, Mohawk is taking pressure off landfills while making fine paper with a story.

Both shades of Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton are a direct reflection of their input materials. T-Shirt White is unbleached white and pure cotton textile waste, while Denim is made from 30 percent denim thread and 70 percent cotton t-shirt textile.

Mohawk Renewal Cotton is available in:
• One White: T-Shirt White
• One Color: Denim
• Three Weights: 80 Text, 60 Cover, and 120 Double Thick Cover
• Rough finish
• Digital and Offset compatible
• Envelopes in A2 and A7 sizes
