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.

Very functional for an entryway. Low pile so it makes it easier for doors to clear the rug. It arrived quickly.

Nice mat and works well in our new kitchen in front of the sink. Expensive for a kitchen mat but let's see how it wears!
Everyone loves it!
Christine from Honolulu, HI– Verified Buyer
We live in Hawaii so having this outside our door is really beneficial: it gets rained on a lot and takes sand off bare feet pretty well. My 8-yr old tenderfoot complained about it being pokey, but she got used to it. I have the multi-color mini stripe, which everyone loves when they see it, and the birch, which is a really nice blend of cool and warm grays - PERFECT blend with our bland house exterior. The mushroom color is very... brown and, well... mushroomy.

I love Chilewich rugs. I have 2 now and they are stylish and durable. I don't care if someone drags mud on it. I can just rinse it off.
