Carpet mess helps Shaw set Guinness world record

January 9, 2010

What do you get when you mix 434 people, 1,200 pies and 3,750 square feet of Anso nylon carpet?

The world’s Largest Pie Fight, certified by Guinness World Records.

Dalton-based Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet maker, achieved that recognition during the company’s Dallas market event on Thursday. The history-making spectacle involved 434 participants as well as 1,200 apple, cherry and chocolate pies. The company held the pie fight on its Anso nylon carpet as a way to demonstrate Anso nylon’s ability to repel stains and to be easily cleaned. From The Daily Citizen.
