Chella Innovations & Awards

For the past 14 years, Chella Textiles’ visionaries Lee Menichella and Scott Bodenner have imagined and executed a series of “firsts” in 100% solution-dyed acrylics and polyolefins. Exceptionally beautiful and uncommonly durable, for use both indoors and out, these logic-defying performance fabrics define the livable luxe for which Chella is renowned.
