Plaids seem “in” right now. We are selling more plaid carpet than I dreamed we ever would. Many of our mills have added plaid designs into their offerings this year. Here is Chilewich’s latest plaid edition.
Plaid by Chilewich reinvents the classic pattern by using 14 different colors to create a complex yet sophisticated weave. Chilewich’s unique proprietary TerraStrand® yarns showcase two colors on each individual thread. These solid, bicolored yarns result in a refined textile. The weave’s random look comes from a deliberate variation in the sequence and ratio of colors. Chilewich calls it a “plaid explosion.” Plaid is made in the USA with TerraStrand®, which is a phthalate-free, plant-based plasticizer that adds flexibility and durability to the product. The additive Microban® ensures protection against bacteria, mold and mildew. Chilewich Plaid will fade over time if left outdoors or in direct sunlight.
