Carnegie Fabrics And Modernfold Announce Partnership In Alignment With Sustainability Efforts

NEW YORK, NY — May 31, 2023 — Carnegie Fabrics — a supplier of sustainable textiles and acoustical management solutions — and Modernfold, Inc. — the premier operable wall product provider enabling optimal space utilization — today announced a first-in-class partnership. A wide range of Carnegie Xorel products are now pre-approved and graded into Modernfold’s supplier product database for quick, easy, and competitively priced specification of the textile on Mondernfold’s custom movable walls.

Modernfold has a legacy of creating beautiful, operable and glass wall systems that are commercial grade, sustainable, and guaranteed. Combined with Xorel’s 40+ years of sustainability, performance, and warranty match, this makes for a perfect offering for large, custom projects.

This partnership makes the specification process a cinch by eliminating the need to send samples and determine yardage. Clients also have the peace of mind that they work alongside two companies with a demonstrable dedication to sustainability. Modernfold is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council® (USGBC), a national nonprofit organization that promotes responsible design and construction, and an enthusiastic advocate of LEED. Carnegie has been a certified B Corp since 2014 and is a forever PVC-free company.

“Keeping true to our values, we look for partners with a strong, authentic commitment to the environment and responsible governance,” said Carnegie CEO Gordon Boggis. “We have true alignment with Modernfold on prioritizing sustainability and providing quick, easy, and competitively priced specifications for projects of all sizes and needs. I look forward to bringing our Xorel product to even more clients.”

“Xorel has adorned countless Modernfold movable walls over the past decades.  Our customers have long understood the value of both Carnegie and Modernfold products so the formalization of our partnership simply made good sense in meeting market desires,” said Bryan Welch, Managing Director of Modernfold.  “Our products together provide a high end solution set to exceed expectations.”

In addition to beautiful, sustainable textiles, clients can expect pricing by the job rather than by the product, which now includes labor and transportation, allowing specifiers greater control over managing process and price.
