Mohawk, Fabric Sources Partner to Create Medical Gowns

Calhoun, Ga.-based Mohawk Industries and Fabric Sources International (FSI) have combined resources to address urgent medical supply needs during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Using fabric provided by FSI, Mohawk Home’s Dalton-based rug manufacturing facility is providing industrial sewing equipment for its skilled employees to produce medical protective gowns for doctors, nurses and other care providers. Healthcare providers wear these gowns in non-surgical settings to prevent their clothing from being contaminated by patient body fluids.

The gowns are worn when a patient’s symptoms are consistent with Covid-19 or other infectious diseases and contact precautions must be taken.

The Mohawk Home team quickly developed a process for cutting the fabric pattern and sewing together the gown components, the company says.
