Blocks Grey Rectangle (14'' x 19'')

The first of our CHILEWICH EDITIONS series is Blocks.

Blocks started as a collage in Sandy’s office when she was cutting up sections of discarded printed materials that she saved from old product development fabric. She adhered these different saturated colored sections onto a black textile surface. The outlines of the different modular colored shapes appear hand drawn but all combined, the graphic effect is bold and gripping.

Partnering with a local print shop in the Atlanta area, CHILEWICH was able to bring Sandy’s vision to life. In order to achieve the vibrant saturated colors onto a black surface, Blocks required printing multiple layers of color with great precision. This was a very labor intensive process without compromise. Made in USA with TerraStrand® and Microban®. Phthalate free.


  • - CHILEWICH placemats should be stored flat. Do not fold placemats or allow them to crease.
    - To clean, simply wipe with soap, water and a soft sponge/cloth. Rinse well and air dry.
    - Do not aggressively scrub.
    - Use of bleach and ammonia-based cleaning agents is not recommended.
    - Machine washing or dishwasher use is not recommended.
    - More permanent stains may result when certain foods or liquids (e.g. tomato, hot pepper, turmeric) are left on the placemat for a longer period before cleaning. Make sure to remove such stains immediately.
    - If improperly stored, creases may appear. To straighten the creases, place a damp cotton or linen cloth over the mat (make sure that the cloth covers the mat entirely) and iron straight with a hot iron. This will not damage the fabric of the mat.
