Sandy Chilewich is the founder and creative director of Chilewich / Sultan LLC in the United States. Chilewich has reinterpreted underutilized and overlooked manufacturing practices, producing designs marked by ingenuity and elegance for the last three decades with two distinct businesses. In 1978, Chilewich co-founded the hosiery company HUE with Kathy Moska; by 1997 the company was credited with revolutionizing the leg wear market with its innovations in design, packaging and merchandising. In years after the sale of the still-thriving HUE, Chilewich continued to explore her fascination with materials and textiles. In 1997, she introduced the highly successful Ray Bowl, which was acclaimed with utility patents and numerous awards. In a quest for other fabrics to incorporate into the Ray Bowl, she stumbled upon woven vinyl and fell in love with what she believed was a completely underutilized textile. Hence the launch, in 2000, of Chilewich's current distinctive product line of vinyl textiles. Chilewich went on to design and manufacture a number of successful applications for her growing collection of textiles. Her tablemats and floor mats can be seen in homes and better restaurants around the world. Chilewich bags, totes and cosmetic bags are modern and functional, perfect for travel and everyday use. In 2001 Chilewich, together with her architect husband, Joe Sultan, launched their first product for contract use. The two have changed the firm's corporate name to Chilewich / Sultan LLC to reflect their emergent business partnership. The award-winning Chilewich / Sultan LLC products are sold around the world.

Questions & Answers
“Hi, what color is this placemat?” asked by Branden
Chilewich Lattice Placemat
Pretty but not so funtional
Veronica from Temple, TX– Verified Buyer
I love the look of these. They are gorgeous in a place setting. However, in everyday use, I would recommend something less...holy. These have large gaps in the weave. I find myself endlessly wiping the table after each meal. If you have a messy family like mine, do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Lovely and elegant for a dressed up table but also simple enough for everyday use.

These were purchased as a gift and although Chilewich is expensive I have always been satisfied. Looks spectacular in my daughters contemporary home
Love my silver lattice placemat!

The strong, sparkling weave of the silver placemat looks wonderful against my baby-blue tablecloth, with my cream and blue, platinum-edged Lenox china, cream napkins with silver rings. Wore well during the holiday meals. I dont recommend placing it over the runner as the picture suggests.
Nice but looked better in picture

The product itself was just as described it just didn't look as nice on my dining table. Maybe if my table wasn't such a dark cherry wood and was a light color like in the picture, these would look better. Or if I had a table cloth for them to sit on top of.
Love the glistening effect

These place mats are beautiful but strictly for aesthetic value since the openings in the lattice are fairly large.

I love these placemats. They are beautiful, a bit more gray than silver though, and easy to clean. They look great with contemporary decor.
