Maximize performance. Minimize impact.
Chilewich textiles are renowned for their beauty and practicality, combining original designs and distinctive colours with extraordinary durability and easy maintenance. They’re also the product of 20 years of continuous innovation to maximize performance and minimize environmental impact.
FREE OF PHTHALATES AND HEAVY METALS
All Chilewich yarns are made in the USA by extruding phthalatefree 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 AND RENEWABLE CONTENT
Half of all Chilewich flooring uses BioFelt: our backing system made from water bottles and other post-consumer recycled materials, renewable compounds, and post-industrial materials.
Chilewich textiles can be washed with water and biodegradable detergents.
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.
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.
