Made with TerraStrand. Chilewich has substituted petroleum-based plasticizers in our yarns for phthalate-free renewable vegetable compounds. Plasticizers have traditionally been made from petroleum-based compounds and are used to made PVC yarns soft. No more. We call this innovative new yarn and the fabrics made from them, TerraStrand. Every square yard of TerraStrand saves .02 gallons of petroleum and .41 pounds of CO2 as compared to conventional woven vinyls. TerraStrand will be used in over 90% of Chilewich woven products by the end of 2015.
