Tidal Woven Wallcovering
Rich in appearance yet versatile in application, Tidal balances an intricate design with neutral hues. Experiments with textured slub yarn yielded its unique surface of evenly spaced horizontal ridges punctuated by bead-like accents. One of the first Chilewich textiles to be originally developed for use as a wallcovering, Tidal was first used aboard a cruising yacht, inspiring its name.

This extraordinarily durable Type III wall textile allows designers to reimagine vertical surfaces. Made in the USA with TerraStrand (extruded yarns composed of a polyester core encased in phthalate-free vinyl that contains 25% renewable vegetable content), Tidal is strengthened by Microban to resist stain- and odor-causing microbial growth.

Chilewich’s BackLess protection system allows Tidal to be adhered to the wall with a proprietary adhesive, making it easy to install and strip. This versatile system is especially well-suited to hospitality and multi-family properties as well as projects that require more durable and easy-to-maintain wall protection.

Tidal debuts in three colorways: Limestone, Shadow, and Snow.


Chilewich's custom-designed TerraStrand yarns use phthalate-free, vegetable-based compounds in place of petroleum-based plasticizers. Consisting of a minimum of 18% rapidly renewable content, our products qualify to earn LEED points.

Certified by UL Environment's GreenGuard program for chemical emissions, our textiles can help to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure while aiding in the creation of healthier indoor environments.

Sandy Chilewich created her New York City based design studio in 1996. RayBowlsâ„¢, the first effort of her new studio, were introduced in November of 1997, and met with instant success. RayBowlsâ„¢ have a simple and inventive mechanism for making fabric concave and have won Chilewich many patents and awards. In keeping with her passion for creating new uses for textiles, Chilewich has reinterpreted a woven vinyl textile for different applications...table mats, floor mats and handbags. The durability of the yarn, its tremendous design versatility and the fact that it is washable, continues to inspire Chilewich. Plynyl, a commercial grade floor surface was developed with her husband Joe Sultan, an architect. Plynyl was created through bonding woven vinyl onto a cushioned polyurethane creating a completely new category in flooring. Chilewich won the ICFF Award for Plynyl at the 2001 International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York. Chilewich began her career as an artist. Recognizing that she loved manufacturing and business as well, she sought a more commercial outlet for her talents and co-founded HUE Legwear. HUE is credited with revolutionizing the legwear industry with their innovations in design and merchandising. Chilewich and her partner ran the company for 14 years before selling it in 1992.
