sustainability goals


Chilewich boasts 20 years of continuous innovation to maximize performance and minimize environmental impact.


Strengthened by triclosan-free antimicrobial protection, Chilewich products retain their beauty and functionality for many years, reducing energy-and cost-intensive replacement and the associated waste.

Free of Phthalates & Heavy Metals

All Chilewich yarns are made in the USA by extruding phthalate-free vinyl over a core of fiberglass or polyester. Yarns are also free of heavy metals such as lead and cadmium.

Softened by Soybeans

Chilewich has replaced all phthalates with a plasticizer made from soybeans, not petroleum. Using this renewable, bio-based compound results in a 40 % reduction in greenhouse gases compared to other plasticizers.

Recycled & Renewable Content

Half of all Chilewich flooring uses BioFelt: a backing system made from water bottles and other post-consumer recycled materials, renewable compounds, and post-industrial materials.

Green Cleaning

Chilewich textiles can be washed with water and biodegradable detergents.

Environmentally Safe

Chilewich products have been tested and certified by the Green Label Plus™ and GreenGuard® programs for low VOC emissions, and they can be found in healthcare settings that include major hospitals.

From carefully sourcing polymers to ensuring that their factory in Georgia meets or exceeds EPA and OSHA standards.
