Inspired by the global travels of collector, designer and museum benefactor Alexander Girard, Mayer Fabrics is proud to unveil a new collection for the commercial market, Wonderlust. Created in collaboration with the Museum of International Folk Art, the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, and Sunbrella®, Wonderlust brings the warmth and color of global folk art to commercial spaces along with the trusted performance of Sunbrella Contract fabrics.
Mayer Fabrics designer Kimberle Frost worked with Sunbrella to give shape to this idea by creating seven vibrant and engaging patterns drawn from the iconic folk art that Girard loved so well. The fine crosshatching pattern on this fabric, Acuco, takes its cue from a similar allover pattern meticulously hand painted on a pottery vase made by an artist from Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico.
Ideal for the built environment, these Sunbrella Contract fabrics are modern yet timeless, bringing joyful energy to public spaces while exceeding the toughest industry standards. Pamela Kelly, Vice President of Licensing for the Museum of New Mexico, says of the collection, “We are thrilled to see such a joyful and thoughtful interpretation of the folk art and textiles from our museums.”
