"Chilewich was founded by New York-based designer, Sandy Chilewich in 2000. All of Chilewich placemats, runners, floormats, table rings, and other table accessories are designed with innovated textiles and style in mind. Chilewich's distinctive product line of vinyl placemats and floormats combine beauty and functionality. All of Chilewich products are made in USA."
Chilewich products are made in the USA with the exception of their pressed vinyl tablemats, linen napkins, and napkin rings. All of Chilewich tablemats are fade resistant and great for outdoor use. Chilewich woven floormats can be used outside, but they are best for dry, covered surfaces. Shag and spun floormats can be used outside, since they are mildew and mold resistant and do not absorb water.
Chilewich placemats and other products will eventually fade in direct sunlight. Due to the materials used, Chilewich products are fade resistant and offer years of use before fading.
