I have loved the product from Chilewich for some time since first seeing it in The Conran shop - but finding it hard to find in the UK. US based company Chilewich produces some innovative designs in an area that I am interested in - low-maintenance cool. I am hunting down the utility mats, made out of tufted vinyl, which come in a great Paul Smith style stripe. The weave floormats look surprisingly like a natural product & it's only when you turn them over to find out they are vinyl.
Award-winning textile designer Sandy Chilewich uses innovative materials to create eye-catching textured placemats, floor mats & plynyl w2w floor tiles to name a few. Images of the Dahlia placemat using the 'pressed' technique to create this lace-like placemat.
Chilewich has reinterpreted underutilized and overlooked manufacturing practices. During the last 12 years Chilewich has designed innovated textiles for numerous applications.
