Chilewich revolutionized how hotels and restaurants dress their tables everywhere in the world when the first products were launched in 2000. The original textiles at first glance are simply beautiful but Chilewich ’s passion is making beauty functional. Each season a new collection which stretches the boundaries of color and texture is introduced. Chilewich textiles offer tremendous design versatility. Chilewich is making a significant environmental development by replacing the petroleum-based plasticizers in their yarns with phthalate-free, renewable vegetable compounds, called TerraStrand™. TerraStrand™ is 100% phthalate-free, and contains 25% vegetable content. 100% of Chilewich woven placemats are made in the USA. All Chilewich products are marked by their durability, cleanability and ease of care. Innovation is at the core of everything and will continue to be so in the future.
