Over ten years ago, New York designer Sandy Chilewich introduced her first woven textiles into the international design community. Together with Joe Sultan, her husband and partner, Chilewich® designs and produces a growing collection of textiles for both commercial and residential applications. The firm’s ongoing innovations in material development provide functional design solutions that are both modern and easy to maintain.
Our partners in the marine industry have found Chilewich® with Urethane backing to be an exceptional solution where style, comfort and durability are a must as well as additional protection in environments where microbes are a concern. Chilewich® products contain Microban®. This antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew for the product’s lifetime.
CHILEWICH® WALL COVERING
Chilewich® is an excellent choice for wall coverings as it is easy to clean and extremely durable. Backed with a non-woven scrim, a barrier is formed from the adhesive. Installation techniques and materials are standard to all common wall- covering products.
Chilewich® – “A Unique Product With Unique Characteristics”
A note about bow and skew; the weave of Chilewich® Contract fabrics may not run parallel to the cut edge, therefore any wave, bow or skew in the product is normal due to the way the fabric is woven. The tolerance for bow and skew is 1.5” in either direction. Some patterns will also exhibit light and dark shading in the material that is also normal. This shading is also evident at the seams where two pieces of the same style may have a different shade.
