Through his travels, Alexander Girard amassed a collection of over 100,000 masks, dolls, ceramics, toys, fine art, textiles and ceremonial objects that he later donated to the Museum of International Folk Art, a division of the Museum of New Mexico.
Wonderlust brings the warmth, pattern and color of global folk art to commercial spaces along with the trusted performance of Sunbrella Contract fabrics. Honoring Girard’s global journey of discovery, the collection name ‘Wonderlust’ connotes a focused desire to understand the emotional and cultural context in which an object comes to express its identity.
Mayer Fabrics worked with Sunbrella to create seven vibrant patterns drawn from Girard’s beloved folk art collection at the Museum of International Folk Art, as well as objects from the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.
The Sunbrella Contract fabrics of Wonderlust come in 44 rich colorways, bringing joyful energy to public spaces while exceeding the toughest industry standards. Featuring durable solution-dyed fibers with exceptional UV performance and bleach cleanability, the collection is ideal for hightraffic areas.
