Bringing Home Camp Wannagetaway

Amy Adams

Reminiscences of Hill Country summers may spark memories of canoeing down the Guadalupe, tribal campfires and short-sheeting your counselor’s bed. But designer Ann Sutherland does nostalgia one better with Camp Wannagetaway, a newly launched collection of vintage-inspired stripes and toiles for Perennials Outdoor Fabrics that evokes lazy summer days spent near a favorite watering hole. The large-scale Boathouse Stripe has a heavily slubbed hand; Vintage Stripe alternates two colors for a rustic linen look; Ticking Stripe provides perfect companionship for solids and prints; County Fair showcases a pastoral countryside; and the softly textured chenille Crepe de Jour offers a homespun feel. All boast Perennials’ Nano Seal finish for extra protection against dirt, fading, rough-housing and, assumedly, the occasional dropped s’more.
