Except for the occasional serape or poncho that travelers bring home as souvenirs of their trips to Mexico, the vivid colors and archetypal rib weaves of South American textiles rarely find their way north of the border. Now, just in time for summer, textile designer and manufacturer Sina Pearson puts these kaleidoscopic designs to good use as part of her new Colores de Mexico line of luxurious outdoor fabrics. Woven from 100 percent eco-friendly Sunbrella fabric that is sunfast and chlorine- and mildew-resistant, the collection of colorful florals, solids, and broken stripes pulsates in electrifying color combinations of flamingo pink, habanero-pepper orange, and lime green, among other tropical hues. “I’m a big proponent of making your yard an outdoor room,” says Pearson, whose designs are inspired by such faraway destinations as Scandinavia, India, Africa, and the French Côte d’Azur and can be found at many of the world’s top resorts and spas. While Pearson’s fabrics have traditionally been available only to interior designers, a handful of her trade showrooms now work with consumers. sinapearson.com
