Pindler’s Newport Mansions Doris Duke™ Indoor/Outdoor Collection is an eclectic assortment of exotic patterns inspired by the batiks, sarongs, kimonos, and personal gatherings of an iconic world traveler, Doris Duke.  Doris Duke had a passion for hand crafted textiles from around the globe, which we have illustrated with this group.

For this collection, our inspirations were found in the archives at Doris Duke’s Rough Point estate in Newport, Rhode Island.  We were excited to discover a trunk filled with artisan indigo hand woven textiles all dyed with indigo using century old techniques, collected during her travels in various countries around the world.  Each document has an interesting story and unique process to how it was made.  We have interpreted the original batiks into a performance Indoor-Outdoor story all woven with 100% solution dyed acrylic.

Solution dyed all-weather acrylic is the perfect performance fabric for casual indoor and outdoor living. Solution-dyed acrylic is durable, resists moisture, fading and mildew, while it also beautiful, breathable, and feels soft and comfortable to the touch.  100% Solution dyed acrylic:

  • Retains its color and strength
  • Withstands years of normal exposure to the elements
  • Resists mildew, rot, chlorine, and atmospheric chemicals
  • Cleans very easily: To clean, spot wash briskly with a lukewarm solution of mild liquid soap and water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove soap and then air dry
  • 5 year limited warranty

These exclusive designs have been woven in 100% solution-dyed all weather acrylic for indoor/outdoor performance.  This special acrylic fiber is virtually impervious to moisture damage, is mold and mildew resistant, cleans easily, and is resistant to fading, even when exposed to the elements.   Interpreting these designs into solution-dyed acrylic was the perfect vehicle for this group of patterns.  We have incorporated different weaves and structures to emulate the documents, adding touches of chenille, shading, and texture to make the fabrics that much more interesting.  Newport Mansions Doris Duke™ Indoor/Outdoor is wonderfully soft and can be used both indoors and outdoors for upholstery, slip covers, accessories, and much more.
