Contemporary Galleries is pleased to offer Chilewich woven textiles to its product offering within its gift and accessory area. Chilewich is a design-led company that produces high quality table top items like placemats, runners and coasters along with indoor/outdoor floor mats using extruded yarns with minimal environmental impact.
New York designer, Sandy Chilewich, introduced her textiles to the international design community in 2000 and continues to grow and expand her ever-evolving product assortment. Chilewich textiles are known for their original designs, distinctive colors along with their durability and easy maintenance.
All Chilewich yarns are made in the USA by extruding phthalatefree vinyl over a core of fiberglass or polyester and are free of heavy metals like lead and cadmium. All phthalates are replaced with a plasticizer made from soybeans, not petroleum which results in a 40% reduction in greenhouse gases compared to other plasticizers. The material is strengthened by triclosan-free antimicrobial protection which is important in todays environment. Unlike many tabletop products, Chilewich textiles can be washed with just water and biodegradable detergents.
Contemporary Galleries offers a nice assortment of easy maintenance placemats along with durable outdoor rugs but also offers anything Chilewich produces through special orders.
