Combining the organic exuberance of a chrysanthemum with the graphic refinement of a contour line sketch and a modern palette of metallic hues, Bloom is a fresh interpretation of florals. This flexible openwork placemat can also function as a charger, acting as a decorative base for whatever is placed on top.
Easy to clean: Simply wipe clean with warm water, mild soap and a clean soft sponge. Rinse well and air dry. Top layer metallic foil may be damaged if treated with rough sponges/brushes, harsh soaps or chemicals.

In 2000, New York designer Sandy Chilewich introduced her first woven textiles to the international design community. Each year her collection grows through her tireless experimentation and passion for different manufacturing techniques. “I am continually exploring for new materials that combine beauty and functionality and for underutilised manufacturing processes that, with design input, can be modernized,” says Chilewich.
Now producing a growing range of products using innovative textiles, Chilewich has unquestionably redefined how the world dresses its tables and covers its floors. The brand is recognised and revered internationally for modern design, ease of care and the durability of its products.
100% of Chilewich woven products are made in the USA. Their textiles are made into tabletop and flooring designs with state of the art equipment in their own facility, and under their watchful eye ensuring the highest quality.
Chilewich is making a significant environmental development by replacing the petroleum-based plasticisers in they yarns with phthalate-free, renewable vegetable compounds. They call these innovative new yarns and the fabrics made from them TerraStrand™. TerraStrand™ is 100% phthalate-free, and contains 25% vegetable content. Almost all their woven products will be made from TerraStrand™ by 2015.

Sandy Chilewich has a unique and personal design aesthetic that revolutionised two distinct industries and, indeed, the modern design world. She is a true entrepreneur and a leader in the business of design, having taken the style conscious consumer from legwear to tableware - quite a leap, but the translation appears effortless.
One of the highlights of her design career is the Raybowl - introduced in 1997, the bowls are made from netting (usually found in lingerie). The bowl uses a simple yet highly inventive mechanism to transform the fabric into a concave shape. In this same experimenting vein Sandy looked at Vinyl - commonly considered to be an industrial material - and saw the possibility for placemats, flooring, fashion accessories and more. Through combining style with the durability inherent in these materials Sandy has opened up a world of possibilities! Sandy continues to seek new uses for existing textiles and weaves, working out of a New York City studio.
