“We are living in a time when people are more interested than ever in reducing our carbon footprint,” Frinier said. “As a designer, it is important to design what comes next while also being mindful of what came before. Renaissance yarns provide a wonderful material for incorporating the lineage of the past of Sunbrella fabrics with the look and texture that is sought after today.”
The Sunbrella Renaissance family of recycled offerings made with post-industrial content began several years ago with braided rugs and has expanded into upholstery and awning fabrics.
Frinier’s Sunbrella Origins’ Collection is distinctive for its slightly fuller appearance and weight, which adds substance and serves to highlight the perfectly imperfect nature of this collection. The subtle textures and classic stripe patterns are designed to be mixed and matched across all constructions, patterns and color ways. Nine patterns are included in the Frinier Origins’ collection, which includes a diverse color palette as well:
• SASHIKO is a Japanese word representing a sewing technique that evolved into decorative embroidery. The Sashiko contrasting thread line in this design serves as an accent stitch line against a rich, textural base cloth. Sashiko colors: Canvas, Hemp, Alpaca, Suede, Indigo.
• The name QUILLO was derived from quillow quilting methods, which creates an easy companion to Sashiko. Quillo is a double cloth with a stitch grid pattern. Quillo colors: Canvas, Hemp, Alpaca, Suede, Indigo.
• GRAPHX draws inspiration from classic graph paper used by artists for concept sketching. Small squares equal in size create a softly textural and precise framework in design perfect for pairing with other base cloths, patterns and stripes. Graphx colors: Canvas, Hemp, Jute, Suede, Russet.
• LINTEX finds it roots in linen textured fabrics thus the hybrid name. The scale of Lintex construction shows how Renaissance yarns work together with Sunbrella virgin yarns to create a sumptuously and lightly textural weave. Lintex colors: Canvas, Flax, Hemp, Straw, Raffia, Denim, Granite, Earth, Suede.
• PLAYA VISTA is Latin meaning beach or ocean view for which this coastal stripe very reminiscent of colorful espadrille canvas cloth is named. Playa Vista colors: Hemp, Alpaca, Straw, Raffia, Denim, Garnet, Granite.
• SEA ESTA is a play on words for the designer’s desire to ask everyone to remember to take five-minute vacations throughout each day. This stylish stripe pattern whispers a hint of relaxing and restorative days spent by the sea. Sea Esta colors: Alpaca, Raffia, Sisal, Denim, Hemp, Granite, Sable.
