Plaid reinterprets a classic weave pattern by using multiple colors for a complex yet refined result. Chilewich has the unique ability to create their proprietary TerraStrand® yarns with two colors on each individual thread. These "bi-color" yarns are woven with solid colors to create a sophisticated textile, with deliberate variation in the sequence and ratio of colors used to calculate a random look. The resulting effect is that of a plaid explosion.
Made in the USA with TerraStrand® yarns that are 100% phthalate-free and containing Microban®, Chilewich Plaid is a durable, refined option for active spaces. We carry only the contract version of Chilewich which is made with fiberglass instead of polyester. This is a stronger weave and will hold up longer than the Chilewich used in standard sized mats found at most retailers. If left outdoors or in direct sunlight, this weave will fade over time.
Custom area rugs can be up to 12' x 20' and come with a self-bound edge (made by folding the face fabric over the edge of the mat and sewing to provide a clean, finished edge). See image in rug builder. Your custom rug will be backed with non-slip latex.
Broadloom for wall-to-wall installation costs $145 per square yard. The roll width is 6', but can be seamed to create a larger size. Please note that with seams, the plaid pattern may not align as the pattern varies from roll to roll. For more information or to create a custom rug, see rug builder below. Freight is free with all rug orders.
Each weave is woven to order and will have a lead time of 3-4 weeks.

What is TerraStrand®?
TerraStrand® is the proprietary name for Chilewich yarns, a 100% phthalate-free product. The TerraStrand® yarns contain 25% renewable vegetable content and are also free of heavy metals and petroleum-based plasticizers.
Can I use Chilewich in a contract setting?
Yes. Broadloom or wall-to-wall is rated class 33 for Heavy Commercial applications. If you choose a custom area rug, it is rated for Residential and Light Contract settings.
Why are there seams in my rug?
Chilewich fabric comes in 72" wide rolls. If the rug or floor mat is wider than 6' in width, it requires using two mats and seaming them together. The seams always run parallel to the length and are in the middle of the mat unless there is a request to put it elsewhere. If a mat exceeds 12' in width, the two seams will be evenly spaced.
Can my Chilewich product be used outdoors?
The vinyl-backed broadloom can be used in an outdoor application and the custom area rugs or mats are suitable for outdoor use.
Can you make custom shapes?
Yes. Please contact our customer service team.
All Chilewich products contain Microban® antimicrobial protection, which works continuously over the lifetime of the product to inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. It is ideal for any healthcare, hospitality, home or office environment where mold and mildew are a concern.
