Liz Lambert’s New Outdoor Textiles Serve Up Southwestern Style

Taking notes from her houses in Marfa, Texas, and Todos Santos, Mexico, on the Baja California peninsula, niche hotelier and El Cosmico proprietor Liz Lambert filled her Far West collection of outdoor textiles with colorful sarape stripes and soft textures. The series, Lambert explains, was inspired by a synthesis of many influences: “a lifetime of traveling throughout the Southwest, saddle blankets, colorful heavy Baja hoodies popularized by hippies and surfers in the ’70s, the finely woven serapes worn by vaqueros that we interpreted for robes early in my hotel career, Peruvian and Bolivian textiles, and fabrics I’ve collected over the years.”

Of course, the textile offerings—including Tejas Stripe, Campo Stripe, Baja Stripe, and Roadrunner Stripe, plus flatwoven rug Playa Stripe—are all made of Perennials’ tough 100 percent solution-dyed acrylic that’s fade-, mildew-, and UV-resistant as well as bleach-cleanable, with a performance finish molecularly bonded to the fibers for long-lasting protection.
