The Mohawk story begins in 1931, during the turbulence of the Great Depression, when George O’Connor took a chance and bought a bankrupt paper mill in Upstate New York. Convinced that the mill and the craftspeople who worked there were worth saving, he strove to make paper that was enduring and unique as it was well-crafted and beautiful. This purposeful foresight became a philosophy understood by four generations of the O’Connor family as they led Mohawk forward.
Today, that papermaking legacy encompasses the manufacture of fine paper and envelopes including signature brands Mohawk Superfine® and Strathmore® as well as proprietary treatments Inxwell® and i-Tone®. Mohawk has also assembled a comprehensive portfolio of speciality digital substrates, including wide format amd sheet fed materials which are best in class for all types of digital printing.
