Chilewich Sakiori Placemat
Chilewich Sakiori Placemat
This Chilewich Sakiori Placemat features an interpretation of the Japanese tradition of sakiori—weaving scraps of old fabrics into textiles. The Chilewich team studied antique examples of sakiori and reimagined their intricate weaves and lively lines with ink and paint. These were then printed onto the brand’s signature TerraStrand® material. Made in the USA and suitable for indoor or outdoor use. The Chilewich Sakiori Placemat is long-lasting, durable and reusable. It measures 18.5w x 13.5"l. Wipe clean with damp cloth or sponge.

“Back in 1997, I discovered that a woven textile made with extruded yarns that’s used for outdoor furniture upholstery had unlimited design opportunities. Using this durable, easy-to-clean material for my placemats and rugs was a no-brainer—and the weaving mill is in the U.S., which is important to me.”
“The textures and colors of our placemats become the first layer upon which everything else sits. They set the mood for the occasion, from a simple breakfast to a full-on holiday dinner. For me, setting the table—really setting the tone—is way more enjoyable than cooking. I love to create the ambiance for an occasion.”
“Today I am fortunate to have a team of designers who are enormously creative and are accomplished weavers. We launch two collections each year, building on our core basics with new weaves and colors.”
New York-based designer Sandy Chilewich is the founder and creative director of Chilewich, a family-owned company she leads with her partner, architect Joe Sultan. In 2000, she introduced her woven-textile designs that are made in the U.S. using custom-designed bi-color yarns. Her placemats—which have a large, dedicated following—changed how tables are set in homes and in restaurants around the world. Her earliest designs included RayBowls, a collection of textile baskets that were launched in 1997 by MoMA Design Store. In 2019, the Chilewich Heddle Placemat was featured in MoMA’s Good Design Lab, adjacent to the exhibition The Value of Good Design.
