In 2023, as the world celebrates a resilience greater than we could have hoped for, Milliken & Company’s ColorDirection Bold Unity presents a collection of connected tones powerful in impact and vulnerable in expression, colors that can sing gentle harmonies or raise the roof with vibrancy.

The new 2023 collection is the work of thought-leaders and trend-watchers in the worlds of textiles, packaging, fashion, design, and marketing and a specially convened Milliken panel, analyzing what’s trending today and what is next.
