After co-founding the successful HUE hosiery company with Kathy Moskal, our friend Sandy Chilewich experimented with different fibers until she stumbled upon woven vinyl, which would become her signature textile. Combining the visual interest of traditional floor coverings with the durability of her proprietary Plynyl®, the Chilewich Mat (2003) is soft, washable and stain-resistant, impervious to spills and suitable to virtually any space, from high-traffic environments to bedside. The latex backing includes post-industrial content, prevents skidding and curling, and adds cushioning. Chilewich flooring was the winner of the 2007 Material ConneXion Medium Award for textile design, and it meets the stringent requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute's Green Label Plus program's standards for VOC emissions.
